A Writers Jumble and Veteran's Day

http://jacquelinevickauthor.blogspot.com/ is where I am today on my blog tour.

Jacqueline Vick is one of those people I've never actually met face-to-face but I feel like I know her. Do pop over and read the blog and leave a comment, especially if you are participating in my contest to leave comments on the most blogs in my blog tour.

Today is Veteran's Day. I live with a veteran who spent 20 years in the Sea Bees. He traveled all over while the kids and I stayed home, and he served three tours in Vietnam during the war.

He's not like a lot of vets, he's not interested in belonging to any of the veteran's groups he says its because he doesn't like hearing those war stories being told over and over. He also doesn't want to go to the Veteran's Day parade we have every year near where we live.

He does like to watch war movies--and usually criticizes all the mistakes he sees. He's happy to see people greet service men warmly in airports--it wasn't like that in the Vietnam War.

I'll celebrate Veteran's Day by being happy my vet is home with me today.
