I can't wait to see who the 5 winners will be! Have fun with the eMOM contest and thanks for supporting our troops.

Varun Gupta said...

Oh great!!! what a nice post on love. Thanks for providing such a nice article. Wish u Happy Valentine's Day. It would be great if you elaborate it more.

Michelle (The Beartwinsmom) said...

I LOVE our troops and their families. I'm an army brat (step-father was active Army guard) and we were stationed at the Pentagon in the 80's. Whenever I sign off on Twitter, I always say "pray for our troops and their families" because without our brave service people, we wouldn't have the freedom topray as freely as we do.

Thanks for hosting this contest! I'm @BearTwinsMom on Twitter.

Warm regards,
Michelle aka The BearTwinsMom

Awesome to see so many folks getting in the spirit and participating. This is going to be a great giveaway and we'll have a surprise for EVERYONE who leaves a comment!

Crystal said...

My husband is an Army veteran, and my big brother is an active Army hero. Unfortunately, his MO requires clearance, so we can't know what he's doing or where he's at, so we can't register him to get letters of encouragement.

If you know an active hero, please register them in lieu of Kelly!

Trish | eMOM said...

Great idea Crystal! Don't forget you can blog this for more entries to win.

Spread the word!

This is great. Thank you for doing this eMOM!

THEhooahwife said...

Sure why not?! I never win these things... but it would be nice to send some anonymous flowers to some special people in my life and brighten their day. Like my husband. Corny, I know, but I think he would be pleasantly surprised...

Now, how I am connected to the military... I am an ex-Coast Guard wife, current Army wife, and my brother and several friends and cousins are in the military too.

Trish | eMOM said...

That's right Military Spouses! You deserve flowers and so do your husbands.

Here's another idea if you win, you can send them to a military spouse you know who may have a spouse deployed. That is sure to brighten their day.

Anonymous said...

First - good luck on your project.

Second - why do you not have an email contact address? I would have preferred to do this privately.

Third - you have been careless in your attempts at self promotion on other people's blogs. You left your advertisement on the tribute to a fallen soldier rather than emailing it to me. Really tacky. Really, really tacky.

Wow--this is so cool! I'm an Army wife. Hubby's a medic & went to Iraq when he was active duty, now he's in the reserves. Incidentally, hubby uses ProFlowers when he sends me flowers every single month on the 11th! (Yes, ladies, be jealous--he's wondeful!)

Trish | eMOM said...

Anonymous,

Our contact information is on our sidebar and everyone is welcome to use it.

We've been here for our military service members, military spouses, military parents, children and veterans for 8 years now and are proud to share whatever freebies, discounts or deals we get with our military community.

We had hoped that you would see our comment on your blog as an invitation for you and those your blog supports to come over and enter to win some free flowers.

We're so sorry you saw something negative in something meant to help our military community.

Anonymous said...

Anonymous took the time to hide his/her identity so people wouldn't know what a snark he/she is yet admitted they run the fallen soldier that was visited. That's tacky.

I hope you know that no one is anonymous on the internet.

Lindsay Griffiths said...

Since my cousin went to West Point in 1998, I've gotten a crash course in the military, and how to best love and support them. We enlarged our military family with my marine brother-in-law, and I've got several close friends in the military. Since 2003, I've been writing and sending packages to friends, family, and friends of friends and family who are deployed, and I just love to support our men and women in uniform!!

I'm so thankful for our troops and their families. It is such a huge sacrifice on their part for our freedom. A close friend of mine is without her husband for the next 6 months while he is deployed in Afghanastan (sp?!). They have 3 kids and so I've been trying to help her out as much as possible.
thanks for the giveaway

Great site! Thanks for all you're doing. I've been "adopting" Soldiers, Marines, Airmen and Sailors for over 2 yrs. I send cards, letters and care packages for the duration of their deployment to brighten their days and remind them of the good things at home. Highly recommend www.anysoldier.com!

Mary Rose said...

What a great idea! I'm the mom of a son who is serving in the Army. He's already served in Afghan and Iraq. He'll be getting more training this year, so he's back in the States. He also just got married a few months ago to a beautiful young lady.

Thanks for all the work you do!

Trish | eMOM said...

Christy,

That's what we do too. We've been around a little longer than Any Soldier (our inception was 2001) and we're the first organization to step in after force protection concerns forced the cancellation of Any Service Member mail. We hope you'll give us a try too!


Mary Rose,

Congrats to you and your son and new daughter-in-law! We're wishing you all the best.
