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.
Real life?? My aunt and uncle served in the Navy years ago. Their son, Derek has been in Afghanistan for the past two years and just recently came home! Whoo! I am extremely close to my family, and it was very stressful knowing what was happening in that part of the world and being totally helpless for my cousin. Individually, he is not saving the world. But he is part of a team that is working toward a better future.
Here are a few pics of Derek's arrival home.
In the book world?? Jasper Hale. He can save this damsel in distress any day, distress totally optional.
Who is your strapping soldier?
