Follow Friday (12)

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read

Here is this week's 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.

Ooh, a personal question! That's a nice change. My favorite veteran is certainly my dad. He fought in the Vietnam War (Army) and then went back into the Army a bit later in life. They actually sent him to Hawaii (is that a great place to be stationed or what?). He doesn't really talk about being in the war that much, but I know that he is a trained sniper, marksmen instruction, and helicopter pilot repairman. I'm not a big supporter of our current war, however I most definitely support the troops themselves.

  1. Oh man. Who wouldn't want to have a meal with these people. Excellent choice. I love your answers. Come visit me as well.

  2. Yum, I agree on the first two. I think I would invite Bones over and then slide out during the night and meet up with Barrons. What would I serve... I think my answer to that would be entirely too inappropriate ;)

  3. Oohh..yummy guests. Can I come and help? Great choices!

  4. You are so self-sacrificing:) Sounds like a steamy meal...

  9. Ha! Apparently I accidentally edited my last Follow Friday instead of copying and pasting to a new post. Some of the above comments will not make sense! People were NOT commenting about my dad as a buffet! LOL Oh, the joys of blogging. :p

  10. Your father looks so cute with the dog in the picture. He looks like a proud man and should be.

    Great job.

  15. Hopping by, new follower.
    Happy Veterans Day

  16. 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 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!
