Q: 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.
Fictional or real life.
Real & Fictional:
Elizabeth Moon served in the Marines and wrote her experience into her books...
Reading The Deed of Paksennarion is to experience boot camp (sort of) in the middle ages. Paks is amazing... I love the way she maintains her values and influences her superiors b/c of that. She changes history for people she really cares about.
She transported her experience to space, too, in the Vatta Wars. Vatta is kicked out of the military over a misunderstanding right at the beginning of the series. Instead of being resigned to being a delivery "truck", she figures out a way to accomplish everything she'd ever dreamed of, hunting down the bad guys & saving the world. Moon's space world is full of detail and plenty of action!
