Follow Me Friday (#17)


This is the day of the week where we get to know each other better by answering a question devised by our lovely hostesses Parajunkee & Alisoncanread. We also gain new followers by joining each other's sites via GFC, so please let me know if you're a new follower since I automatically follow back. And now for this week's question....

This week's Follow Friday question:
In light of 11.11.11 and Veteran’s Day tell us about your favorite soldier and how he or she is saving the world. Fictional or real life.




Well my favorite solider is my husband Eddie.  He is no longer in the Air Force but did 6 years and then separated.  He's been to Iraq and Saudi Arabia as well as other places.  I'd also like to mention my dad who is retired Air Force.  So I am have been a military brat most of my life.  Both Eddie and my dad still work for the military as civilians and I am so proud of the service they have done for our country! 


Leave me a comment so I can see who your favorite veteran is!!  Happy Veterans Day and thanks to all the soldiers who represent the USA!

  11. That's nice to know a soldier! I couldn't think of any that I might know, so I had to choose a fictional one!

  20. Some people have friends and/or family who served or who is serving in the military. Other people aren’t really keen on the long-standing war and really have no answer at all.

    As for me? I don’t know anyone who is serving or who has served so I decided to go with what I want and chose a fictional soldier as an answer. The thing is, I had four prime candidates! I did eventually end up with one with a lengthy explanation. Care to know who it is? Follow me back to http://www.howardsherman.net and find out!

    In celebration of today’s cool date of 11/11/11 I’m offering a special $11 discount off all my interactive fiction books! Sure I’m a book blogger but I’m also an author. All the details of the $11 off on 11/11/11 is at the bottom of my Follow Friday blog post.

    Since I’m posting this kind of late just add 'FF’ to the coupon code and it’ll be valid all weekend long!

    Thank God it’s Follow Friday!

  22. What a great post. I love the sword arch picture. I know they do that for weddings...was it a military ball though? It's great that we have men like those in your family to help protect our country.
