Salute to Author Veterans 2011

Today, I'm honoring fellow authors and members of the publishing industry who are veterans. This is by no means an exhaustive list. These are all folks who are proud to stand and be counted. I ask that you visit their sites, and get to know their books.



The History of Veteran's Day (from the US Department of Veterans Affairs)
World War I – known at the time as "The Great War" - officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of "the war to end all wars."

  1. I'm proud to have served from 1973-1977. I was an E4 Avionics Technician who worked on TACAN at what was then NAS Miramar (and is now MCAS Miramar). I was also the training petty officer for VFP-63, the Eyes of the Fleet.

  8. Happy Veteran's Day to all my fellow Vets. May God keep all of you safe from harm and thanks for a job well done.
    I served Oct 1974-Feb 1978 as Quartermaster. I trained to handle petroleum products and worked supply and stock record accounting. Only worked with fuel at the fueling point at Fort Hood for a few months before being sent to Germany.

    I would also like to thank the other authors for their service as well. We have a wall at our church where we acknowledge those who are active and retired.

    Thank you again.

  12. Happy Veterans Day - It's too easy to forget our military are making sacrifices every day - not only with with their lives but their selfless giving of time and energy to their countries. God Bless them, and may He give their families strength as they're often left to carry the burdens of everyday living
