In Honor of All who Serve in Defense of Freedom & Liberty

On Sunday, the fam and I visited Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

It’s a beautiful place.

Spiritual.

Haunting.

Usually when we go there it’s almost always on a whim, a spur of the moment thing.

As if its spirit overcomes us and compels us to visit.

But on Sunday, we wanted to go knowing that Veteran’s Day was forthcoming.

And we wanted to put ourselves in the presence of the most honorable of veterans.

True heroes fighting for the truest of causes.

But we also went knowing that it wasn’t just a reflection for today, the day my country honors all who serve and have served in defense of Freedom & Liberty.

We went knowing that Sunday was Remembrance Day. A day which our good friends in the United Kingdom reserve for reflecting on the sacrifices of their heroes.

During my years of service, I was fortunate enough, honored, to be able to serve closely with many fine soldiers and sailors, veterans in defense of Freedom & Liberty, from the United Kingdom. I made many good friends.

I also served closely with those from Canada, Australia, Japan, and other countries. I made many more good friends.

I am a lucky old sailor who is honored to have served with such honorable men and women from all over this fine yet feisty planet of ours…

It’s not much, but to honor all veterans around the globe who serve in defense of Freedom & Liberty, I offer my novel THE SEA TRIALS OF AN UNFORTUNATE SAILOR and LEAVE: A SHORT STORY to all for free. The novel will be available for free until Midnight tonight (PST) and the short story will be available until Midnight tomorrow night (PST).

Those in the United States can get their copies here

All others around the world can get theirs here

And you can always find a free selection of stories right here

PEACE …through superior fire power

  1. What a beautiful tribute. It’s important that we always remember, not only those we lost, but those who fought for us, and those who continue to fight for us. It makes my heart swell with the depth of my respect. A debt which can never be repaid.
