Tribute to Our Troops

                    

Welcome to Blog Tour de Troops. You should be coming by here after visiting Glenn Skinner’s Blog, and please go and visit Ron Vitale’s Blog. I was more than happy to participate in this charity event hosted by the IBC. I am always mindful of the brave men and women who keep our country safe and protect our freedoms. They and their families sacrifice more than we will ever know.

      

I have met and known my fair share of veterans. I have some veterans in my family and local church. Family members of friends are either veterans or actively serving. Some of the younger generation of my own family are serving. We just met a young man in our hunting club who serves in the National Guard. A friend of my in-law’s father is one of the few remaining veterans of WWII, but that wasn’t the only war he fought in! My grandfather served in Korea, and a great uncle served in Vietnam. The list goes on.

Also in Georgia, the state I live in, we have several bases here. As the crow flies, I live close to at least two. It’s not uncommon to see military equipment being hauled down the interstate or see army aircraft fly over the house or the hunting club! When jets fly over the windows rattle and the house shakes–it’s loud. We have seen a pilot practice his evasive maneuvers over our hunting club. We were able to watch him/her from the ground for like 30 minutes while we cooked breakfast. We have seen people in uniform grab a quick meal in my hometown or a different city we were at at the time.

Veterans and troops are all around us, and they are people just like us. They just have that special something that allows them to serve our country.

Without them and their sacrifices I would not have the freedom to write in this blog. The IBC would not be FREELY hosting this event. We wouldn’t be free to write the books that we are giving away to you and to them.

I always feel proud when I see a man or a woman in uniform somewhere. I am just too shy to say anything to them personally. I speak my best in writing and not verbally. This is what this blog post is all about. That’s why I participate in charity events just like this. 

It doesn’t matter to me if they have served in the past or ARE serving. They can be at home or overseas. No matter their job or division or where they are; let’s remember them this Veterans Day and during this event! All to often they are forgotten or taken for granted.

In your comments reflect on the post and share your thoughts. Do you know veterans or active troops? What are you grateful to them for? What freedoms do you enjoy that they protect? Got anything else you would like to add to the discussion? Do you see troops or have bases in your state?

Remember, each commenter instantly receives a free ebook of Neiko’s Five Land Adventure for them and a troop. Please leave your email address and your ebook format preference (Kindle, ePUB, or pdf)  so I can send you your free copy. Also, while you’re here, feel free to follow this blog by clicking follow above or take your shoes off, stay awhile, and take a look around. You can follow me on twitter at http://www.twitter.com/A_K_Taylor and on facebook at http://www.facebook.com/AKTaylorsBooks Also, don’t forget to pay Ron Viatle’s  Blog a visit since this party hasn’t finished yet!

If you don’t leave your email address and your ebook format preference, “I cain’t send ya no ebook!” Any questions? Salutes from the backwoods!

At this blog and the IBC…

    I teach special education at the high school level. I guess I’m pretty lucky we have recruiters in our building weekly. My students love going up to our service men and women and talking to them. The part that warms my heart is the service men and women always have time to talk to my severly disabled students.

    A.K. so glad to be touring with you! When we lived in Georgia, we would always see our soldiers at the airport. Whether coming home or departing. We made it a point to shake their hands and thank them for their service.

  25. I am so very thankful for everyone who has risen to the call of duty to their country. Veteran’s Day is truly a holiday to remember, not just in a bank holiday, and hopefully a day off from school and work, but in its significance for all of our lives. xx

  26. Thank you so much for participating in this.

    I come from a long history of military service. My maternal great grandfather’s family fought with Garibaldi and were exiled to South America. My maternal grandfather and his two brothers served in WW II, my grandfather in the Pacific, and my uncles in Europe (D Day, Battle of the Bulge). One of my uncles nearly lost his hearing from his service, and all the explosions. My grandfather was nearly killed when a Japanese fighter struck the deck of his ship.

    More recently, both my father (RIP) and stepfather served in the Navy in Vietnam. Dad was in the early stages, and died in ’89 from his exposure to Agent Orange, while stepfather was a Naval Corpsman who was attached to a Marine unit. They saw a lot of action.

    And I’m married to a former member of the Australian Air Force, who signed up at 15 under a special apprentice program.

    Thanks so much for your post and words. Though people look at me strangely, if I see a man or woman in uniform, I go out of my way to thank them. And as an introvert who works better with the written word, it CAN be uncomfortable…but given what they have gone through, my discomfort is fleeting

    My email addy is DinozzoGibbs@gmail.com and I can take Epub.

  29. Thanks for supporting our troops!! I grew up a military brat with a long family line to the military. I would also be in the service but due to medical reasons, cant. However, I am one of the most patriotic people I know. Flags are flying outside my house. I always stop to thank a soldier (where ever we are). I proudly sing patriotic songs. I get mad when others take for granted the freedoms we have because of the sacrifice of so many love men and women. So thank you very much for giving the troops a copy of your book! And a special shout out to my father in law who is a Vietnam Vet and has a Purple Heart among other medals!

  35. As the wife of a currently serving soldier I want to thank you for supporting our troops. The love and support that is being shown during this Blog Tour is amazing. And I can tell you without a doubt the support is appreciated.

    My husband and I met just eight days before he was given his deployment orders. It is a long tough road that our troops and their families deal with when the soldier is deployed. Each day is tough, but we put our best foot forward so to speak and get through it.

    I can tell you, I miss my husband terribly but I am so proud of him for doing what he does.
    It’s not an easy life for our soldiers, they do it because they care about protecting our freedoms.

    So thank you for supporting each troop.

    I live in WV and I am fairly sure we have no base, but there is a camp about 40 minutes away from my home where the military does sometimes occupy. I know once that they had trained soldiers in urban warfare nearby.

  42. Tracy Riva says:

    My son-in-law is on active duty in Iraq, getting ready to come, hopefully in time for the holidays. This tour, it’s his second, has been especially hard him. He battles not only the fear of being in a war zone, but homesickness every day.

    I appreciate what men and women like him are doing every day, whether in war zones or in places of relative safety, we have troops stationed all over the world. Each of them sacrifices more than we can know and even those at home know that any day they could be called up or transferred overseas and they are willing to do that for us.

    I’m grateful for this opportunity to give something back, to say, in some small way, “Thank you,” and I’m thankful that you and the IBC have offered so many of us this opportunity.

    I would like my book in PDF, please and thank you.

  46. Thank you for participating in this tour! My grandfather was in the navy, so the military has always been near and dear to my heart. I try to “pay it forward” when we see someone out in uniform we try to buy them their dinner. It’s a small way of saying – YOU MATTER. God bless our military today and always!

    Thank you for participating in the blog tour to get books into the hands of the soldiers.

    You’re reflections of living near military bases and being exposed to military activity brought back memories for me. I lived in off-base housing near the end of an airbase runway. Our house rattled constantly and mom had her decorative plates in her little china hutch wired to the wall. As I child I could name you a plane or copter just by its sound. My parents were both serving on that base, but we also had two other AF Bases within a half hour (I know that seems a lot, but they were all different kinds of bases with different plane squadrons) and an army depot. Our whole Sacramento metro community was practically military of some sort and I have always been thrilled to see them in uniform and serving even though it could have been quite tres blase. Thank you soldiers!

  57. Numerous members of my family on both sides have served in the armed forces for several generations, both in the US & abroad. One of my mothers uncles paid the ultimate sacrifice in Europe during WWII. I have never taken for granted the sacrifices of our troops & applaud those who contribute to make their time away from family & home more bearable.

    As a member of LibraryThing, who had signed up for your giveaway of Neiko’s Five Land Adventure there, posting a comment here has enabled me to ensure that 2 other people get to read your book, since I’m relinquishing my spot on LibraryThing to another member.

  72. I still live in Ga also never left. Heres my short story.
    First i want to thank you for all you do for helping all the men and women of the armed forces. I am a war orphan from during the Vietnam Era. My my father left our house one day in 1962 with a group of men from fort Benning georgia where my little brother was only a month old. Well He and the whole group went missing right after leaving Saigon never to be herad from again not even as p.o.w, Not long after being in vietnam. My Mom was left in a strange State with eight kids with no family to fend for herself, My father was an E7 at this time and always worked 2 jobs to have enough money to support us. Well it took over ten years to delecare him dead and my mom lost our home and we had to rent a much smaller place. She never remarried or dated. She loved him to the day she died. Want i am getting at is that we had no support or even family support raising up. We were just forgotten. It was so hard for my mom. I just want to never see this happen to any other military family ever again. Thanks joannie jscddmj [at] aol [dot] com

  73. Thank you for being part of this blog tour. I appreciate your gifting of ebooks to our troops. My grandfather fought in WWII. He is my hero. He had to leave his wife and two young daughters to protect our country. My grandmother grew a victory garden and took in boarders to fight the battles on the homefront. They are among thousands who sacrificed so that we can enjoy the lives we have today. Thank you again.

    Most Cordially,

  80. Thank you for taking part in the tour for our troops! I really connected with what you said. Our troops do have that something special that gives them the courage to defend us everyday. I also feel a bit shy to walk up to someone in uniform and thank them. I think: they’re probably too busy doing something important to stop and listen to someone say thank you. Or maybe its too cliche or overdone. But I’m getting better at overcoming my timidity and expressing my thanks. Its the least we can do considering they have done so much for us!

    Thank you to our men and women in uniform!

    First of all I want to thank all of you authors who are participating in the blog tour. I’m a Military brat of two retired Navy fathers. My real father has passed but my step-father is alive and still proud of being in the Navy.

    What a way to honor our Service men by having this blog. I want to thank each and every commentor for leaving a comment. This is the nicest way to give back and say thank you.

    I now live in NC and Ft. Bragg is about 40 mins away as the Crow Flys. I too see the manenuvers being done by the Pilots of Choppers and actually watch the paratroopers from the 82nd Airbourne jump and play there war games.

    It always gives me a thrill to see them, the reason being they have served and died to give me a right to complain about our government. The right to be free and alive and not under rule by some Dictator.

    Thank you so much you beautiful Men & Woman of our Armed Forces.

    My dad was a WWII vet and landed at Omaha Beach on D-day. He didn’t live quite long enough to go on one of the Honor Tours and he didn’t talk about the war but he looked very dashing in the pictures. : )

    I live in Omaha where they turned SAC into a navel base. LOL The very idea of a navel base in Nebraska is funny, but I am sure they are still underground keeping watch.

    Thanks for the book and thanks for supporting our troops

    thanks for doing this. As an army veteran of multiple deployments, I can assure you that reading provides sanity and a chance to explore worlds outside the dust/rain/dirt of the present un-fun. With the advent of eBook readers it has become even easier to read, try new authors and to feel less cut off from the world.

    sincerely – Holly (prosekniticATyahooDOTde)

  104. I’m so glad there’s another Tour de Troops!! Can’t wait to see if there’s more comments than Memorial Day! What a great way to give our troops a little escape in a book while they are away from home and at war. Thanks IndieBookCollective!! Thanks for the free book – can’t wait to read your story!

    I would like the troop book to go to my cousin Zachary Neer serving in the United States Army in Afghanistan.

    I love your post and the pictures. I do know some veterans but I don’t personally know any people serving now. I’m grateful for my freedom of choice. If we didn’t have this then we wouldn’t be were we are today. I don’t have any bases around where I live but I think that it might be interested to spend a day or 2 at one or even being in the shoes of one of these heroes. Thank you to all of our veterans and troops out there.
