Veterans Park in Shenandoah, Virginia

 Today is National Vietnam War Veterans Memorial Day, so it's appropriate to show a Veteran's Memorial Park. I happened across this when looking for the post office in the town of Shenandoah. 

The right-hand wall is a retaining wall. The truck is on a driveway behind it.

The Post Office is directly across the street. Is anyone else photographing post offices? I am trying to show support for our troubled postal system. 

While we're looking at Shenandoah, here's the town hall and a house with a canoe in front of the fence. 

There are other interesting sights in that town so I need to go back and visit them.


  1. I did take one photo of a tiny country post office this past summer, but I took it because it was picturesque and didn’t think to tie it into the struggles the agency is having even though that is definitely on my worry list.

  2. Hello,
    I love the murals, the eagle is cool. The memorial park looks nice! Take care, enjoy your day!

  3. Hi — great idea to photograph post offices!

    best.. mae at

  4. Also — I was very near you Sunday when I drove from Fairfax to Charlottesville!


  5. There really does seem to be a serious issue with USPS right now. My wife has an ETSY business and routinely packages are taking longer to reach points in the US than to Europe. Most recipients understand, but some become quite irate with her, seemingly unwilling to acknowledge that she has no control over postal deliveries.

  6. Great murals honoring the veterans. How sad about the post offices struggling, they are such integral part of our every day life.
    Thanks for participating in Monday Murals.

  7. Great mural and I like that park.

  8. Real nice scenes and honoring all Vietnam Veterans today. I am still trying to support our post offices and am sending birthday cards out today.

  9. Linda - we can never do enough to honor our veterans. Thanks for the thought about photographing post offices ... We certainly have some interesting ones in Montana - far-flung and tiny! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!
