11-11-11 Veteran’s Day Memorial Blog Post and Give Away


If you’ve been anywhere I’ve blogged recently you know about my new acronym KISA – Knight in shining armor.My 1Night Stand story One Knight in Brooklyn is about finding a modern day KISA. In One Knight in Brooklyn, my hero Robert is a fireman. But today I want to honor another set of KISAs – The brave and selfless men and women of our Armed Forces.

I’m a writer of words but I have only two – THANK YOU!!!

To enter the contest GIVE AWAY  of One Knight in Brooklyn– please leave a comment with your appreciation for those who have paid a price for our freedom.

Don’t forget the In Between Blog Hop continues on Monday November 14 at Jenna’s Journal.

And stop by all the great hoppers sites for more fun and prizes!

    I love your acronym, KISA. Very cool! I am also thankful and grateful to our military men and women, all heroes in my book. My Veterans Day post pays tribute to one of my favorites, Audie Murphy, but also to all our other veterans, too. Thank you for this post.

    P.S. In case I win the contest, my site is at http://lynnkelleyrandomactsofwriting.blogspot.com. I noticed that the Gravatar doesn’t have my info. Or if it does, it’s hiding from me! LOL!

    • Thanks, Lynn. You are entered to win. Audie Murphy was pretty cool! We have his old estate home here in Dallas. It’s a restaurant now but he is close to our hearts. All the men/women who sacrifice are. I know I couldn’t do it.

  4. Today is Remembrance Day here in Canada, where we too pay tribute to the men and women of our country who have sacrificed their lives, fought, and our still fighting for us. Definitely true Knights In Shining Armor.

    I already have a copy of One Knight in Brooklyn. 🙂

    All the best!

    • Sweet Jessica – the woman who’s always one step ahead of me at every blog I comment on. — Including my own. Yes – I honor the service today of the men and women in Canada, too. It’s the only other national anthem I know by heart (in English not French) If your wondering why, it’s because I love hockey! And for that alone Canada must stand strong.

    Casea,

    I’m a Military Brat. Both my fathers are retired Navy. So is my brother in law. I first of all want to say thank you for all the men and woman who serve in our armed forces, police & fire dept..

    Especially the ones, who have gave up there lives for us. I especially want to thank the families of these individuals of these people. Without your support and love they couldn’t have done the amazing duties & jobs.

    I praise and hug you all for all the wonderful things you do for my freedom and safety. I feel you should be the highest paid people in our country. And maybe someday you will be.

    Again thank you, my prayers are with you always.

    • Teresa – In my mind you are no less deserving of thanks than your family. The guys on the front lines sacrifice a lot but their families sacrifice too. I agree they should be the highest paid people. Thanks for coming by.

  8. My maternal grandfather & 2 of his brothers served overseas in WWII, but one of his brothers didn’t make it home. My paternal grandfather was also in the service, but remained state side. Several of my uncles & cousins have served in the armed services at various locations around the world. There isn’t a branch of my family that hasn’t contributed to the safety of the United States in some way & I’m so very proud of all of them.

  10. Hi Casea! I already have Knight but I just wanted to say thank you to all the veterans and active military. I had a few friends that two after graduation from Texas A&M, they were commissioned officers with their papers for the Gulf War. I thank God every day that they came back.

    Plus, two of my great uncles were POW’s in Italy during WWII. I never forget….ever.
