In the 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.


Okay, this is a tough one due to the second part of this week’s question. My favorite soldier isn’t exactly saving the world anymore-- mine is my father. Always has been and always will be. He was killed in an accident ten years ago though. However, I still look to him as my soldier either way. Well sailor if I were to get more technical about it. He was a navy man and was in Vietnam. Though I guess in many ways he saved me through times. He taught me to read when I was small and encouraged my large imagination into writing and storytelling.


Happy birthday to the Marines and a big Thank You to all of our Veterans as well. *big hugs*






Happy Friday!

  8. 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!
