Yes, it's that time of the week again! It's Follow Friday which is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read. The question of the week is:
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.
You know, this should be a pretty easy question for me to answer. I mean, I have countless friends in the military. But to be honest? I can't say that they're (individually) saving the world. Maybe it's my Army addled brain telling me that working as a team is the only way to go, but that's how I see it. I know several medics, an ex-boyfriend is still in the Infantry, one of my oldest and dearest friends is an MP, I have a cousin who does computer engineering, and that's not even touching on everyone. Individually, I can't say that they're saving the world. Sure, they're doing what needs to be done, but even at that, they can't accomplish anything unless they're working together. At least, that's how I see it. So here's to wishing our troops (past and present) a happy Veteran's Day; it isn't easy to do what you do.
