Q: 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.

A. This is a great question, one I have never really thought of.  I do not know of any soldiers personally but I am very grateful and thankful for each and every person with sacrifices themselves and their family to keep us safe.   

I am glad that we have a day to honor each and every person.  My grandfather was in the Army and he was a very proud man who always flew a flag in his yard and I like to remember him and the things that he used to tell me about from his military days.

What about you?  Anyone close to you who is serving or has served?

If you a new follower, welcome and thank you, please let me know if you have any questions.

    Both of my Grandpas were also in the military, one in the air force and one in the army, so I definitely can relate! 🙂

  • It is wonderful to have a day to honor the men and women who have served. I wish there was more we could give them in recognition of those sacrafices. They give so much and I feel like we can never honor them enough. Wonderful post.

  • 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!
