As always, its time for another Follow Friday. This wonderful meme is hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. Each friday two blogs are featured in an effort to expand one's blog. Go and check out both of these sites to learn more!
Question: In 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.
Its a strange realization, but I've only known one soldier my entire life, and I regret to say that I hardly knew him at all. My grandfather was in the Navy for almost his entire life and served on bases all around the world. Most notably, he fought at the Bay of Pigs Invasion when the US tried to invade and overthrow the Castro dictatorship in Cuba. It breaks my heart knowing that I don't have any solid memories of my grandfather, he passed away when I was barely three, but I cherish the stories I've heard about him both as a man and a soldier. So, I see him as my favorite hero, but consider all the men and women serving or who have served in the military to be heroes and have the deepest respect for the sacrafices they have made.
Ok, so I totally didn't mean to go all sentimental over here! I would love to hear who you all wrote about for this post! Send me your links in the comments. Happy Follow Friday!
