Follow My Book Blog Friday - #7

This Meme is hosted by Rachel from Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read on Fridays. #FF is a blog hop that expands your blog following by a joint effort between bloggers.

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.

My Answer:
I have two...First, my Uncle Capt. Renard Lowman - Air Force (Now Retired). He joined the Air Force straight of high school & never looked back. His time in Iraq was just scary for the whole family & I was so happy he made it back home safely.

The other is fictional, but the movie he played in was based on an actual war. I've always loved Vietnam war movies back in high school, just love watching them and my favorite movie out of all of them was Platoon. Sgt. Elias played by Willem Dafoe, who by the way gave an Oscar worthy performance. 

Lata Days...MUAH!

  1. I'm glad he made it home safely! Hi *waves*, new follower! Like your blog, you can check out my FF here if you like

  2. happy veteran's day!

    I follow you here. Will you stop by mine?! I'm hosting a cover craze for an author!

  3. 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.

  4. Don't know any real soldiers myself. But that picture from your movie choice reminds me of Ben Stiller in Tropic Thunder! I suppose he was mimicking him!

    Here's my Friday Hops

    Have a GREAT weekend!

  5. It's very scary to have a family member fighting somewhere like Iraq. I have several friends in Afghanistan, and it's something you worry about every day until their safe return.

    I tried to follow you, but your widget isn't working at the moment. I'll try back later!
