    My 13 year old daughter, Ashley, entered an essay contest at her middle school last month on the subject of when is the best time to honor our military. It was a school wide contest and they announced the winner at an assembly today. She won! And the prize was a check for $500!!!!! :eek:
    She is now entered into the state wide contest and if she wins that, the prize is an all expense paid trip for her and a parent to Washington D.C. That would be so awesome! We are from the D.C. area, but haven't been able to go home in over 6 years and we definately miss family!

    Congratulations to your daughter, I know how proud you must be, I have a 14 yr old daughter. My son is in the Army and preparing for a tour of duty in Afghanistan, departing just after the holidays. I would love to read your daughters essay if it's available for public viewing.
