Follow Friday # 5

Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read!


Friday's question is...

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: A few years ago I had to do a project for Veterans day on a solider who served in a war. My veteran was a family friend who served in the Vietnam War. It was such an honor talking to him and hearing his story. He is such a sweet, courageous man and I enjoyed every second talking to him!

Comments? Who is your favorite solider?

Comment below and happy 11.11.11!!

That's nice to have someone you know be a Veteran! I couldn't remember if my grandpa served or not, so I chose a fictional character!

Here's my Friday Hops

Have a GREAT weekend!

Hi! New follower.

I had a similar experience talking to someone who had experienced the war first hard, but he was part of the French RĂ©sistance and spent several years in concentration camps. I can relate to your experience. Really very powerful!

Check out my FF here.

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!
