2012 Armed Services YMCA Essay and Art Contests

I am very excited to help spread the word on this wonderful contest for young children to write about a Military Hero. Thanks to the Armed Services YMCA for sponsoring this essay contest to encourage children to support and recognize our brave men and women in uniform. Patriotism is at an all time high and our military men and women deserve all the praise and honor.

Thanks Andrea for sharing the news about this contest for our young children.
