Happy Birthday, Walt, Cup of Comfort for Military Families Giveaway
Today is my husband Walt's birthday.
Walt is a naturalized citizen, who served in the U. S. Air Force, and spent a year in Vietnam. The year from Jan 1970 to Jan 1971 was a long time for us both--and for our baby daughter Julie. When he left for Vietnam she was two months old, and when he returned she was already talking and walking--and running.
In honor of Walt's birthday, and since yesterday was Fourth of July, I thought it would be fitting to give away an autographed copy of A Cup of Comfort for Military Families, which includes "Welcome Home," a true story about Walt.
To be entered in the giveaway, leave a comment or a few words about someone you know in the military or who has served or just a thank you to our troops between now and July 11. Must be a legal resident of the US and be living in the United States--or have an APO or equivalent mailing address for anyone serving in the military outside the USA.
One winner will be selected at random. Winner's name will be announced on July 12.
Bonus entry if you are a follower of my blog or if you post about the giveaway on your blog--just let me know in your comments.
Good luck, and, Happy Birthday, Walt!
