Celebrate Little Victories - USA Today's HEA Blog, RT Recap, and Scouts Remember

I am grateful to Joyce Lamb at USA Today's HEA Blog for publishing several posts I coordinated in celebration of Military Appreciation Month:

"Brats" share their memories: link
Spouses share their stories: link
Veterans share Their Memories:  link

Look for one more post on Wednesday, May 28.

Tracy Solheim, who shared her memory as a "brat", also writes about Military Appreciation Month at this link.

Mary Kennedy shares her thoughts of "books on the battlefield" at this link - I'm quoted!

I am also grateful for the opportunity to attend the RT Booklovers' Convention in New Orleans - I posted recaps on my travel blog, ALOHA ON MY MIND:

Day 2:  Book Blogger Conference link
Day 3:  Welcome Party and Club RT link
Day 4:  Meeting Authors in Club RT link
Day 4:  Kensington Book Signing link

Look for more posts about the Giant Book Fair and SOS America Military Tribute at ALOHA ON MY MIND.

Mahalo to Troop 424 for remembering the veterans in the Savage Cemetary.  Lest we never forget.

  1. So much to be grateful for. I'm thankful for tradesmen at the moment. Things to fix around here.

  2. Wonderful tribute. I will definitely be remembering and celebrating those who fought for our freedoms not only this weekend, but always.

  3. I'm grateful that I had the opportunity to share in your RT Conference experiences through your blogs. Thank you to all members of the military and their families, past and present, for their dedication and sacrifice to perserve our freedoms. Thank you Kim, for all you do and for sharing so much with us.

  4. Kim, thank you so much for adding the link to my Books for Soldiers blog on the Cozy Chicks today. It was originally published in PW and your comments were so compelling, I just had to reprint the blog. I see that you went to RT! Wow--I've never gone, but have always been tempted. Be sure to let me know if you're going next year. Thanks again!!

  5. Thank you so much for this post. and all you do.

  6. Thank you for all that you do Kim. Always remembering those who have fought for our freedom. And missing those who I know who didn't come back.
