UPDATE May 31, 2014: Due to multiple submission errors awaiting response/correction, the winner and all Memorial photos will be announced and shared on Flag Day (June 14, 2014).
As Memorial Day approaches, we all think about two things: America’s Veterans killed in action and the American Flag.
On Memorial Day 2014, I would like to help honor all veterans (those who survived as well as those killed in action) and give everyone a chance to win a free “Made in the U.S.A.” 5′ x 8′ outdoor American flag.
All you need to do is submit a photo of you or a family member alongside your favorite veteran (living or deceased) and you’ll be entered for a chance to win.
Here’s the How & Why:
Many of us hold a special veteran very close in our hearts, and those of us who do, also appreciate the importance of flying America’s flag. Almost every active duty service member and veteran in this country would obviously prefer flying an American Flag that was actually made in the U.S.A.
One U.S.-based flag maker has decided to team up with vfwlady.com to encourage your help for a very special Memorial Day blog post. My goal is to make my Memorial Day 2014 blog post the biggest Veterans & Family “memorial” photo album ever published.
Thanks to the folks at Gettysburg Flag Works, I get to encourage widespread photo submissions by offering a highly sought after patriotic item to one lucky winner. That’s because Gettysburg Flag Works has donated one of their very own 5′ x 8′ Outdoor American Flags as a grand prize, shipped to the winner directly from their New York home.
What could be better than honoring a veteran & maybe winning a FREE FLAG??
Here are the Photo Submission Rules:
- The photo submitted must be of yourself or a family member alongside (yours or their) favorite special veteran. Please try to find photos with that veteran in uniform if possible..(but not required :)
- You must agree to the publication of this photo (to include your first name, veteran’s name & branch of service) in a Memorial Day post on vfwlady.com
- You must submit your photo entry by May 19, 2014
If you’re okay with these terms, then follow this link to submit your entry.
I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOUR PHOTOS, America! And BIG THANKS to Gettysburg Flag Works for their generous assistance. Need a new American Flag? Consider buying a Flag that’s “Made in America” from the patriotic folks at Gettysburg Flag Works!
