As millions prepare to celebrate the Memorial Day holiday, we should remember the soldiers and their families who have given and continue to give so we can enjoy this freedom.
I’m delighted to share an awesome contest with you that Sourcebooks author Sara Humphreys is beginning this weekend to celebrate military wives/families and the things they go through. Sara is the author of the Amoveo Legacy Series - UNLEASHED, UNTOUCHED and the upcoming UNTAMED.
Here’s what she has to say about the 4th Annual U.S. Military Wives Contest.
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 Military Wives. It turned out to be an incredibly rewarding experience. I had the privilege of meeting several incredible women 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, fathers, brothers and sons who are immensely loved and sorely missed.
This contest will run from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend but start sending those entries in now!
Who is eligible? Wives of any U.S. military service member may enter. Retired or active-duty.
How do you enter? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with a picture of you and your family member in uniform. Tell us a bit about what branch he serves in, where you've been stationed, challenges and so forth. We want to hear your story! Please put "4th Annual Military Families Contest" in the subject line.
Once a week, beginning Memorial Day weekend, I will pick one entrant to be highlighted on my blog. These weekly entrants are semi-finalists. Labor Day weekend I will select three winners.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. If you’re off to enjoy the holiday, may it be a safe and happy one for you and your family. If you're a member of the military, thanks for all you do.
