Update for A Reluctant Hero

I have updated "A Reluctant Hero" to fix the many typos, misspellings and errors from the original posting of the story. I also did a minor rewrite of Chapter 1.

A number of military retirees wrote to take me to task for not having my characters follow proper military protocol. I have updated the radio call signs for units. I also modified the dialog between Sergeant Cooper, Josh and Tyler as they fired the Homewrecker's big cannon to follow proper procedure.

The updates will hopefully improve the accuracy of my story but do not change the story line in the slightest.

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and enjoy the remainder of the holidays.

p.s. I forgot to update my blog with the results of the real life PIAA AAA football from my last blog entry. To no one's surprise, Bishop McDevitt (Philly Eagle LeSean McCoy's h.s.) faced off with Manheim Central for the Division III championship on November 29th. Bishop McDevitt prevailed. McDevitt beat Cathedral Prep from Erie the following Friday. Meanwhile, Archbishop Wood (from Warminster, Bucks Co.) beat Berwick in the other semi-final. Archbishop Wood beat McDevitt to win the PIAA AAA state championship for 2013.
