This past year our family lost one of its heroes. Dr. John Kohlhaas, my husband's grandfather was a World War 2 veteran. He passed away late last year. In honor of his life, I wanted to do something special. I've decided to GIFT one of our nation's veterans or active military persons with a custom portrait session and print credit - for them and their immediate family.
Our military gives so sacrificially - for our FREEDOM. This is just one special way I can honor that service. And, through the contest, I'll be able to introduce you to many of our nations heroes - past and present.
Without further delay, let me tell you all about our Veteran's Day Portrait Contest.
If you are currently serving in the United States military or are one of our treasured veterans, this contest is for you!!!! Enter now for your chance to win a FREE Custom Portrait or Family Session including a $300 print credit.
Here are the Details:
1. Send in ONE of your favorite pictures of yourself in uniform along with proof and a short summary of your military experience to me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
