Yet another powerful and touching war story. I was I tears in the first three paragraphs, and it didn't get any easier from there.
My little brother finds out in the next couple of days whether or not he's getting deployed to Aghanistan... So yeah...maybe I shouldn't have read it. ;) I was crying over Mike and then happy tears when Emmett get his medals.
Loved it, honey.
My dearest Quinn,
Thank you for reading. When it was mentioned in our conversation, I didn't expect you to read it, but am glad you did, nonetheless. :)
I wrote this in hopes that the average person would appreciate our military men and women better. Sorry you were in tears, but at the same, I'm glad the story evoked that emotion. It's meant to do it. So, for me, mission: accomplished.
Don't be scared for your brother. He's probably just as hesitant to receive his orders as you are. ;) And what happened in this O/S was purely ficticious. :) As was Emmett's award ceremony, since I have only seen Air Force ones in person. :)
Thank you for your lovely review. Glad it touched you.

That was awesome!! While I never served overseas, I was active duty during the first go round in Iraq, Operation Desert Storm. I have known several courageous and selfless individuals who have served in the desert and am in awe of them. Thank you for writing a touching story about those amazing individuals as well as the families of those who lost their lives on 9/11.
Oh! Thank you so much, twi-sessed!
I'll have you know your review made me cry. I was so moved by your comments...truly. It has been my hope that readers could feel my appreciation for the military as well as my sympathy for those forever changed on that fateful day. As a nation, we should never forget that day.
As a grateful citizen (me), I want to thank you for your service to our great country!
As an appreciative author, I thank you for not only reading, but for reviewing as well. As you can see, this story hasn't received many reviews, for whatever reason, but I thank you regardless. This was beautiful, and it means so much to me that you feel this way about something I wrote. I'm very humbled.
Nice meeting you. Hope we meet again. Take care!
