US Army Military History Contest

"The Center of Military History is pleased to announce its Special Topics Writing Competition, now named for General James Lawton Collins, Jr, a visionary Army leader, educator, and historian. The goal of this contest is to obtain firsthand accounts from junior officers describing how their unit responded when facing a particular challenge in the current war. The Center of Military History wants to capture the small-unit-level view of this conflict for inclusion in future publications."

CLICK HERE for rules and information (the link above does not work, sorry.) Scroll down to find the picture shown above and click on it.

There are awards of $500. and $250. for the winning essays.

I have printed out the rules and sent it to the soldiers I know who might be interested. Their stories are important and should be preserved.
