Q: In light of 11.11.11 and Veteran’s Day tell us about your favorite solider and how he or she is saving the world. Fictional or real life.
A. First off, Happy Veteran’s Day to every past and present member of our military! I am thankful to every one of them for their service and sacrifice. My grandfathers, both who have passed, were also veterans and I am grateful for all the soldiers like them who have been willing to risk their lives for us.
My step-brother Josh is the only relative I have that is in the military, and he is currently serving in the Air Force in Japan. My book club friend Amy recently went to Afghanistan for several months as a surgeon in the Army. She sent me some beautiful scarves from over there. My husband’s friend, Charles, is serving in the Marine Corp. He recently returned from Africa where he was involved in deterring pirates. He will next be doing other jobs overseas, but he wasn’t allowed to go into details.
Happy Veteran’s Day!
