Just an update. I am still working on The Grim Reaper. It is just taking some time. I am up to about Chapter 64 and it is like Stormy in A Fresh Start - it just keeps growing! I was asked to post a simple blog note once a month until I can start publishing. My best guess right now is late fall. I appreciate the interest people have in this story, and I promise I am writing every day. Some days it might be a chapter, some days it might just be edits, but I am working on it!

I need a little help. I have been trying to keep track of Grim's awards & decorations. I think I have them correct, but here is my list. If you were a vet, please check my list: Army Service Ribbon, Global War on Terrorism Service Ribbon, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Ribbon (3 Bronze Oak Leaf Clusters), Iraq Campaign Ribbon (4 Bronze Oak Leaf Clusters), National Defense Service Ribbon, Good Conduct Ribbon, Army Achievement Ribbon (1 Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster), Army Commendation Ribbon (V Device, 1 Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster), Purple Heart (2 Bronze Oak Leaf Clusters), Bronze Star (V Device, 1 Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster), Silver Star (1 Bronze Oak Leaf Cluster), Meritorious Unit Commendation (awarded to 2BCT after they returned from Grim's first tour), Valorous Unit Award, 1 Service Stripe, 5 Overseas Service Bars. Forget about any awards you think he should have from the final battle! Am I missing any? Thanks.

Another request for some assistance - Are any of you wonderful readers criminal attorneys? I need some technical advice. Please send me a note. Thanks.
