I Honor the Veterans of our Nation

I honor and praise –
veterans of our country
fighting for freedom,
for United, we must stand
or divided we will fall.

Colleen M. Chesebro loves writing speculative fiction and the sub-genres of fantasy and magical realism, other types of cross-genre fiction, syllabic poetry, and creative nonfiction. She loves all things magical which may mean that she could be experiencing her second childhood – or not. That part of her life hasn’t been fully decided yet. A few years ago, a mystical experience led her to renew her passion for writing and storytelling. These days she resides in the fantasy realm of the Fairy Writer where she writes the magical poetry and stories that the fairy nymphs whisper to her in her dreams. Colleen lives in Arizona with her husband. When she is not writing, she enjoys spending time with her husband. She also loves gardening, reading, and crocheting old-fashioned doilies into works of art. You can learn more about Colleen at www.colleenchesebro.com.

        1. My Russian born grandfather served in the U.S. Army. My dad was Navy and my brother was Army. My husband is a 24 year disabled Vietnam Veteran. We also have two daughters that served in the Air Force. We are definitely a military family. ❤

          1. Now see, a lot of people won’t admit that–hahahahaha!! I’m very much like “Elwood” in “Harvey”, who is quite comfortable with his invisible friend–regardless that some folks think he’s at least “odd”, if not nuts! Especially as I’ve gotten older, I rather like the persona of the usually nice/maternal, dotty and possibly flighty woman who cooks and bakes (and who knows what else??) 🙂

      1. I served long ago too. 29 years it is. I had a federal government job at the time that gave me a furlough do I could serve. Later on, I managed to get my brother to join up as well. We as women serving are an amazing group!!!

        1. I went into the Air Force in 1976. Seems like a lifetime ago! My husband is a 100% disabled Vietnam vet. We raised 5 kids together and he retired after 24 years. We are in Colorado near Peterson AFB and still use all the facilities. The military became a way of life.

          1. Wow, that is so nice! I went into the Army in January 1987, five months after getting a promotion at my federal job. Lol! My former husband was not military & our daughter us not thinking about joining. Good thing. My current fiancé of (gasp!) 15 years is not a veteran either but his late father was. Happen so, he and I were both in the signal communications division. I live in the suburban Long Island, NY and live very far from a military post. But I wouldn’t trade it for anything!!
