Men of the Military Blog Hop + giveaway

Photobucket
The wonderful and fabulous Jeep Diva (Vanessa) has put together a 117 blog hop in honor of our veterans. The military not only protects our freedom, they look good doing it! They make great heroes/heroines in our romance, mystery and thriller books.

I Smell Sheep is a paranormal website so we had to really think out of the box to find something military themed. 

Then Sharon remembered her cousin is a recruiter for the Marine Corp! So I snagged some pics of him and some of his fellow Marines. 


Sgt. Tyler Rock

The Jeep Diva is donating $100 to the Wounded Warrior Project. Thank you Vanessa!

I Smell Sheep is giving away a prize pack:
Cover Me by Catherine Mann
Rambo - The Fight Continues DVD
Wounded Warrior Project magnet (I donated $10)
Sheep Swag, including the new Werewolf Hair, pen, Team Sheep trading cards, stickers, candy, Kool-Aid and Moonpie (not pictured because I ate them all, but I will get more)
