Awards:

Deadline:
Oct 10
Here’s the challenge: Find a military veteran that you do not already know. Get involved in that person’s life. This is NOT simply an interview. Make a friend, discover his (or her) history, his feelings—then and now—and how he would like to spend the rest of his life. Write a 1500 word essay about the experience (and continue to cultivate the relationship, of course). Our hope is that, whether you win the contest or not, your life will be much richer for having connected with someone who has served our nation.
