Welcome to Blog Tour de Troops’s blog hop to support our soldiers in the field. Some of you are visiting from Regan Black’s blog, and hopefully most of you will be going on to Terri Long’s blog to continue today’s blog hop.
I first got involved in Operation E-book Drop for one reason. You see, my father is a member of the retired military, and while he doesn’t talk about Vietnam often, I know my father felt the lack of support just as every soldier who returned from that place did. If offering a soldier my book for free gives them any sort of support, then I wanted to offer it to them.
Taking part of Blog Tour De Troops was a different sort of decision. While I completely agree with supporting our troops and providing them with free e-books, my politics are very liberal. With the death of Osama bin Laden, I would bring home every one of our soldiers if I could.
This doesn’t mean I don’t feel grateful for each soldier’s service. My gratitude feels small and ugly, because I will never understand the sacrifices these soldiers have endured. I can say that I appreciate the troops, but really, there is no way of giving those soldiers the proper value on the months and years of service they have given those of us who have stayed safe at home.
So it really comes down to support. As a writer, all I have is my writing to give, and if I can give a soldier any kind of escape from the war each one is fighting, then maybe I have done my best to support one soldier.
