Follow Friday #20

Follow Friday is a weekly event hosted by Parajunkee & Alison of Alison Can Read.


Question: 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.

 

Answer: We call it Remembrance Day here in Australia. The only person I personally know who has taken part in a war is my Pop. He worked as an engineer in the Vietnam War.

  5. Hi! New follower.

    Neither of my grandfathers ever served (one had TB, the other was a farmer) but I often hear stories.

  9. 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!
