Q. In the 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.

A. My favorite solider would easily have to be my Grandpa. He isn't really saving the world anymore as he passed away almost four years ago, but he was retired long before that anyways. He was in the army and fought in Vietnam. My Grandpa was one of those people that everyone loved, he was a great storyteller and always encouraging me and my siblings to be the best we could be and to always dream big. He'll always be one of my absolute favorite people and I hope to always make him proud.

And to all of our Veterans and to those that are serving now, I just want to say thank you so much for everything you do! 

Happy Friday lovelies!


  1. I have two grandfathers who also served int he war and one is no longer with me. Your grandfather sounds like a really inspiring man!

  2. My grandfather on my dad's side was an Army veteran, he was also a great man!

  3. My grandfather was in the Korean war. Heroes aren't they?

    Happy Veteran's Day!

  4. Your grandfather sounds like a very special guy. This day is very much about men like him.

  5. 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!

  8. It's great that you have such strong memories of him. It seems that he touched many people's lives besides your family's.
