True Blood’s Wonderful Veterans

In honor of our veterans, fans not only celebrate the soldiers in their lives but the ones on TV. True Blood joined the festivities in a list of top veterans on television, created by On the list were characters like Seeley Booth from Bones, Teddy Altman and Owen Hunt from Grey’s Anatomy, Andy Botwin from Weeds, and Kip ‘Half Sack’ Epps from Sons of Anarchy.

Also on the list was our favorite southern gentleman and Bon Temps resident vampire, Bill Compton, played by the dynamic Stephen Moyer. Before becoming Lorena‘s prey, Bill was fighting for the South in the War of Northern Aggression. It was on his way home that he fell victim to Lorena and became a vampire, which isn’t all too bad given that he met and fell in love with Sookie Stackhouse as an undead man.

Another True Blood character who made the list is Iraqi vet Terry Bellefleur (Todd Lowe). Though suffering from PTSD, Terry has managed not only to protect Bon Temps, but also become a fan favorite, with his sweet disposition and honesty. And even though Arlene’s baby may not be his, he loves her enough to take care of her and her kids.

Terry’s not only the guy you want in the trenches with you, he’s the guy you want with you all the time. Season 3 may have dealt him some hardships, but he’s stood his ground and overcome them. Will he be able to keep all his promises in Season 4, especially with the mess Arlene seems to be already getting into?

While this list is fun, it also reminds us of the wonderful soldiers who have put their life on the line to protect America. Let’s get out their Truebies and show our veterans a fangtastic time.
