Why do I Write About Snipers?

One reason: Respect.

They do the hard and dirty jobs.
They risk their lives to do the impossible.
They serve.
Their training alone would make most of us whine for our mommies.

I fly my flag everyday, but wish there was some way I could let
my heroes know how highly I value their sacrifice.
Heroes like:
U.S. Navy SEAL Adam Brown,
U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle,
U.S. Army Major Rusty Bradley,
U.S. Special Forces Captain Jason Amerine and the Green Berets who fought with him in Afghanistan,
and my favorite, my husband, Bill, U.S. Army Sergeant in Vietnam.
Heroes like all the men and women who've died for their country.
They were just regular people like you and me.
Just stronger than most.

So, yeah, how could I not choose these kinds of men for my heroes?
