Five contestants have been selected as winners of the VFW's 'Honor a Veteran' contest. Videos were judged on creativity, originality and how well they honor our nation's veterans.
"Selecting a winner wasn't easy," said George Lisicki, VFW national commander. "We received a number of high-quality entrants. It was truly touching to see how much effort people put into creating videos that honor our service members--current and past. We'd like to thank everyone who participated in this historic event, either as a contestant or as a voter. You are all winners."
The winners are…James Renfroe (1st Place--a vacation package for two to Orlando, FL from Southwest Airlines Vacations); Lloyd Tremmel and Julie Bradbury (2nd Place Tie--a Wii System with a sport package plus a $500 game store gift card); and Bob Cook and Jesse Simpkins (3rd Place Tie--a $750 gift card to an electronics superstore).
