I have always admired the members of our military. They sacrifice their time, abilities, and sometimes their lives in order to preserve the freedoms we Americans enjoy.
Our reading challenge in May will be one way of thanking them for their service.
Books for this challenge must include at least one character who is a member of the military or another profession that serves our country (police, firemen, nurses, sheriffs, etc.). War widows will also count, as they have sacrificed their husbands to our country.
For my international friends, feel free to use books that support your military and/or other service professions, as mentioned above.
Please come back and share which books you read in May that support our troops. Be sure to tell us which character in your book(s) fit into the challenge and which branch of service or profession they served in.
