Throughout my life I have had many connections to the military. I grew up during and after World War II in Bangor, Maine, where a Strategic Air Command Base (Dow Field) was situated My stepfather was in the Air Force. I was engaged to an Air Force pilot. My late husband was first in the Marines and then the Navy. The class I took to renew my Concealed Carry license was taught by a former Army Ranger. One of my prime resources for my books was in the Air Force. I live in Tampa, Florida, not five minute from MacDill AFB, headquarters for Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC).And of course there is my very treasured friendship with former SEAL and now best selling author Jack Carr. I have the most incredible respect for those who serve, which I think is why so many of my books have current or former military as heroes.
Because of that, so many of my books have heroes who are current or former military. On t his memorial Day 2020, I choose to honor all those who serve and ask that you observe a moment of silence for all who gave and all who give now.
I am so proud of the books you write honoring the men and women who serve in our military. Watching the virtual ceremony last night was just as touching as if there had been the crowd in front of the White House. We are blessed and thank you for all the books you write about these courageous men and I am proud to be married to a veteran.
Phyllis, thank you so very much.
Thank you for your service and your sacrifice.
***** NOTE: please do not include me in consideration for the the prize, I already own all of them. I wanted to honor those who serve and have served, to thank them for their service and sacrifice.
Pat, you are incredible!
Lots of my family served. Still trying to determine each and everyone who did.
The Revolutionary War, The War of 1812, At least three in the Civil War, my great grandfather snuck into WWI with his two older brothers by fudging his age.
By the time WWII came around his younger brother and son filled in the ranks. I lost and uncle MIA in Korean War. Many served in Vietnam. That is just my paternal side.
My mom’s side is 100% Dutch. Some faught/served in the Dutch military. My Opa was born in 1913 the first American born here. All five children served in their own ways. Opa, Art, & Bill in the US Army in all different locations from Alaska to Africa, Italy, and Normandy.
Dick could only drive vehicles stateside for them because he had lost an eye. Their baby sister made bombers at the Williow Run plant in Ypsilanti.
Along with many cousins. I am proud of them, because of their examples. I choose to serve in the Navy in Desert Shield/Desert Storm.
This includes family members of these veterans. They are equally as important.
So I’m proud of my family, and especially my friends I served with, and who continue to serve this great country today.
God bless and thank you for your service.
Thanks to all that have served and sacrificed… to all that still serve, you are in our hearts and remembered!
My great grandfather fought in the civil war. My grandfathers both fought in WWI, my Dad and Uncles fought in WWII.
My oldest brother was in the National Guard and my youngest nephew is currently serving in the Marines.
I am a very proud Aunt and fully support our Military.
I grew up on a military family. My dad served in the Army for 22 years. My brother served in the Army and my 2 sisters served briefly. I have seen the Vietnam Memorial in Washington DC and remember my feeling of being overwhelmed by the number of people on the Wall. My dad was in Vietnam and someone he knew name I’d on the Wall.
Thank you for bringing to life some of these selfless heroes and heroines, Desiree. And thank you for drawing our attention to all those who’ve served today!
