I have donated $50.00 to Wounded Warriors Project! Thank you, everyone for your support. 

Welcome! A group of Secret Cravings authors honor our veterans on this Veteran's Day weekend. We all pledged to donate $30. to Wounded Warriors Project.*
I will donate $1.00 to Wounded Warrior Project for every comment left on this blog.(minimum $30. Maximum??? More comments mean more money for WWP)
And I'll award 2 lucky commenters their choice of one of my books on Sunday night. So remember to LEAVE YOUR EMAIL!

"On the battlefield, the military pledges to leave no soldier behind. As a nation, let it be our pledge that when they return home, we leave no veteran behind." Dan Lipinski


“When my ammunition was exhausted, I grabbed magazines from the wounded and managed to protect the position until another Bradley fighting vehicle arrived on the scene. I helped load the most seriously injured soldiers before letting them take me.”
He moved away from her, put his face in his hands…tears flowing freely, and said, almost inaudibly,
“Crawford, Matthis, Chambers, and Blake…all…gone.”
She moved to him, opening her arms, gathering him in. He rested his head on hers, closing his arms around her shoulders. They stood together in silence. The breeze picked up, cooling the air, and the rustling of the palm leaves covered the sound of his soft shuddering sigh.  On my website

“Glad to be delivering you back to your sister. Say what does she look like again?”
“Stay away from her, Captain. She’s got enough to do takin’ care of me. She can’t be cryin’ her eyes out over givin’ it to you.” Benson chuckled.
“Too bad. But then if she looks like you, maybe not!” Danny laughed.
“I’m not tellin’.” His brow furrowed, Benson asked, “Say Captain…you sleep good?”
“Okay, I guess,” he lied.
“I see things. I wake up. I don’t sleep all night,” Benson said quietly.

Danny nodded, looking away.
“Will those things go away? Will I always be seein’ Joe or Cal when I go to sleep?”
“I hope not,” Danny said, without conviction, looking down at his hands.
“At least I’m still here. Thanks to you.”
“I told you, just shut up about what happened,” Danny snapped, making a fist.
“Everybody here does his bit. I did mine…with you. Don’t talk about it,” Danny said in a low voice. On my website

"We must never forget why we have, and why we need our military. Our armed forces exist solely to ensure our nation is safe, so that each and every one of us can sleep soundly at night, knowing we have 'guardians at the gate.'"
Allen West

"All soldiers who serve their country and put their lives at risk need to know that if something happens to them, their families will be well taken care of. That's the bond we have with our military men and women and their families." Jeff Sessions

This is the kind of selfless, service-orientated effort we've come to expect from Jean Joachim. I add my thanks to all the others.
Although I do not possess the computer skills to be part of the Hop, I did try and will, of course, contribute to this most worthy cause.
