Follow Friday (Nov 11)

 

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.


I want to dedicate this post to my cousin, Patrick who is currently serving in the United States Army. He is currently on deployment to Afghanistan. I know the considerable danger he is in, and I am beyond amazed at his commitment to serving his country. He is willing to give up his life to protect others, and there is nothing more amazing than that. I cannot wait to see him, when he returns next summer. 

Leave me a link to your Follow Friday, so I check read about all the other amazing soldiers out there

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!
