Thank you to everyone who submitted their inspiring and thoughtful stories with us for our first Women of the Military contest. We want to do our part to make our military heros, heroines, and their significant others feel as special as they are! The service they provide to our great countries is remarkable. Whether they are Canadians bearing the full brunt of the conflict in Afghanistan or they are Americans active in Iraq and Afghanistan or elsewhere keeping the country safe, we are proud to support our troops. No matter whether everyone agrees with the conflicts or not, these women and men put their lives on the line to protect their fellow country mates.
We had a lot of entries to go through and after some hard choices, we have narrowed it down to three finalists. Everyone had amazing and great stories, and it was very hard to decide among the entries. If you were not picked, please take heart that we appreciate you so much and hope you will enter again next year. We wish everyone a safe and peaceful finish to their duties and service.
Happy voting, the finalists (in no particular order) are:
