Attention Service Members, Military Spouses and Veterans
Here’s your chance to combine your flair for writing and your military life experiences for a chance to be featured in our Military Community. The theme is Military Love Stories. We are looking for well-written, creative, meaningful real-life stories that celebrate the heartwarming power of LOVE in Military Life.
Raise your voice. Share your story. Inspire hope in others like you.
Please complete all fields in the form below, along with your Military Love Story in 650 well-written words or less. Some suggestions for taking us back to where your story begins include:
1. How did the two of you first meet?
2. When did you know this was “the one”?
3. Describe your shared vision for the future…
Keep it sweet and positive. As a general rule, use short sentences and write in the first person, telling the story from your point of view. Submit only unpublished original stories for consideration. All submissions will be checked for originality, so if your work has been previously published on your blog, let us know and take some time to re-work before submitting. And if you have a photo include it!
