Today, I’m honoring fellow authors and members of the publishing industry who are veterans. This is by no means an exhaustive list. These are all folks who are proud to stand and be counted. I ask that you visit their sites, and get to know their books.

The History of Veteran’s Day (from the US Department of Veterans Affairs)
World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” – officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France. However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”
