For the past couple of years, as a special thank you to our service members and their families, I have held a contest just for them. It turned out to be an incredibly rewarding experience. I had the privilege of meeting several incredible soldiers and their beautiful families. It’s so easy to forget that there are real people who are deeply affected by the conflicts overseas. Hearing the personal stories of these families helped me remember that our troops are husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters who are immensely loved and sorely missed.
I hope you’ll help me spread the word about this contest. I look forward to meeting more incredible families!
