It's Friday again and it's Veteran's Day, a holiday that is very close to my heart. Take the time to thank a veteran today; they have a tough, thankless job.
It's also time for Follow Friday!

Today's question: In light of 11.11.11 and Veteran's Day, tell us about your favorite soldier and how he or she is saving the world, fiction or real life.
My brother has been in the army for 7 years. He is on his third deployment to Iraq (a 12 month tour, a 15 month tour and this one will be 6 months) and should be home in December. Thank goodness! He was also deployed to Haiti after the earthquake to help rebuild and maintain order. He is only 26 years old and instead of doing what normal guys in their early twenties do, he has been out risking his life and serving his country. He is also an amazing husband and father. We are super close and I am so proud of all of his accomplishments and for his service to our country.
Who is your favorite soldier?
