Veterans' Day Giveaway

This Tuesday (11/11) is Veterans' Day - the day when we honor all of these people who have served for our country. In my little way I have made a tradition of giving away a lounge set to a military family on that day. To be considered into the giveaway this year, you will need to post a comment to this post and then I will randomly draw a winner (or maybe two). The drawing will be done on Veterans' Day.

Please only enter this if you are a military family.

Thanks to all of you who make sacrifices everyday to make this country a safe place for my family! Thank you!

My husband has been in the USMC for 18 years. He is a musician and has traveled extensively throughout his time in the military. We have 5 children and we are anxiously awaiting his retirement in 2010!

ps - Veteran's Day is also my birthday :)

Thank you for doing this giveaway. My DH is in the Air Force, and is currently deployed to Iraq, but we're half way through the deployment now. Yay!!

Such a nice thing for you to do every year. Last year we got a monkey set that Jessica loved. She wore it proud. When her daddy asked her where she got it she said " I got it from a sewingmama who wanted to say thank you to me for having a daddy in the Army". It was so sweet! Last week my dh signed he's last papers and now will be in the Army for life! We are very proud.

My husband has been in the Army for 15 years and leaves on Sunday for 18 months. I spent six years in, myself, so I understand a lot of what he goes through. What a sweet thing for you to do!

Wow! This a great way to support the troops. I am the First Sergeant of my unit and I was looking for giveaway links to send to my Soldiers when I found yours. I've been in 18 years and I have always appreciated the wonderful things that folks like you do for us. Thank you! ARMY STRONG!

Thanks, Kate. It's so sweet of you to think of the military families. My dh is in the Army and just returned from his second tour in Iraq.

Really cute stuff! I was given a link to your site from my friend Michelle. My husband and I have both been on active duty in the Marine Corps for the past 10 years. Thanks for giving back to military families!

Lizzie Fish said...

This is such a thoughtful idea! My friend Michelle sent me this link, too! My husband is a Marine and we're so happy to have him home!

Thank you for this give away. My husband is in the Navy, and will hit his 11 year mark in Jan. He will be re-enlisting this week after four years of medical waiting and worry.

Well - I did not get to the drawing yesterday. My kids did not feel well. So this morning we picked the winners. I have two children so I cannot just pick one number - we have to pick two. The numbers picked are 6 and 10. I just put the number of comments in a bowl (13 - I did not count the deleted comment). So the winners are: mequeen01 and brandi. Congratulations! I will be contacting you this morning. Thanks again to everyone and their families for your sacrifices.
