Today we’re happy to introduce you to tvyps. He’s our “Military Buff” Contributor on Squidoo.
Tell us a little bit about your niche topic.
The military is a topic of interest covering many eras & different sub topics. I love all things military but will primarily focus on the human interest aspect of the military. There are so many stories to be written and I would love to hear all of them.
Tell us about the moment you fell in love with your topic. Was it an immediate thing or did it happen over time?
At an early age, I played with toy soldiers. However, I remember the stories that my Father told me. He didn’t say a lot about the sad times, but about the good times he had experienced. I love research and the unknown subjects that come up during that search and exploration. I am a Veteran of Desert Storm and although it was not a fun experience, it has shown me that the real story is not all that you hear in the news.
Who had the most influence in your life?
My Mother was the biggest influence in my life. Although my Father was in the Army, my Mother and her family were occupied in Belgium by the Germans for several years at the beginning of World War II. After the war, she knew what it was like to have true freedom in the United States and to appreciate those things that you have, because many do not have that opportunity.
