Recently, the VA Mortgage Center had a friendly competition for Military Bloggers - The Best Military Blog Contest. While this competition was friendly, all of the blogs nominated are worth reading!
Soldier’s Perspective [soldiersperspective.us] won $3000 and they donated it to the Camp LeJuene Ballerinas - children of deployed Marines.
Marine Corps Mom's [marinecorpsmoms.com] won $250 and here is their plan: Thanks to everyone who voted for Marine Corps Moms! We finished 6th and will donate the $250 check to Operation Marine Corps Kids, a Marine Corps Family Foundation project.
Acute Politics [acutepolitics.blogspot.com] won $250 and here is his plan: Acute Politics ended up in 7th place. I will be donating the prize to Project Valour-IT.
AfghanBlog [bouhammer.com] won $250 and here is his plan: I have to go through some steps to have them mail me the check, but I am going to ask my wife to go ahead and send a check for the $250.00 directly to the Fisher House foundation ASAP,as I am sure they can use the money now.
Please note: Teflon Don from Acute Politics is currently in Iraq. Troy from the Afghan Blog is currently in Afghanistan. Yet, they still want to help others.
Once again, I am overwhelmed by these fine people. Thank you all for the inspiration you provide to all of us.
