American Sniper Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy Bundle Giveaway!

Many of my old readers may remember when I first reviewed Chris Kyle's American Sniper when it first came out.  You can't read the book without feeling like you KNOW the man.  Like he's your friend.  When he died, we mourned like he was family.  That's just the kind of guy he was.

I was really excited when the film promotion company sent me 3 pre-released copies of the movie (which will officially come hit the stores on May 21st in time for Memorial Day weekend) with the following instructions:

1. Keep one for myself as a Thank you for my husband's service.
2. Give a copy to a Vet or Service Member that we personally know.
3. And to give one away to my readers.

One of our favorite families
Ben and I talked a lot about who we would give the copy too. We have SO MANY wonderful friends who serve! But after talking about it, we both knew exactly who we wanted to give it to.  The second copy is going to an amazing husband and father of two little girls.  He's been in the service for about 8 years and has been deployed.  His wife is one of my best friends and one of the greatest examples of what a military wife should be: strong, loyal. honest, hard-working, and classy.  When we think of a married couple who we look up to and admire, it's them.  My only regret is that we weren't living closer to them and didn't take advantage of the time when we were neighbors so long ago!  As a BIG thank you for their service and their example to us, that DVD is going to them.

The 3rd copy is up for grabs!!

This is what I need you to do:

Mandatory:  Leave a comment giving a shout out to your favorite service member(s) past or present.  (If you can't leave a comment, because my blog is a little testy these days, please email it to me at nutsinanutshell(at)gmail(dot)com and I will post it!

Optional (Leave a comment for each completed)

For those of you who don't win, Warner Bros wants you to know that $1 from every sale goes to the Wounded Warrior foundation.

Contest ends tomorrow night!!! Thursday!  Winner will be announced on Friday so I get this sent out quickly and the winner will have a copy before it's even out in stores!  How awesome is that??

Good Luck!

My shout out goes to my father who served in Vietnam and the Gulf War.

He taught me love for my country and I will forever be in awe of what he went through in service to his country - things that affect him even to this day. He truly sacrificed for a country he loves.

Kaleigh sends to me:

"I want to say my husband since he has sacrificed so much for our family. He has given up friends and family for this lifestyle. However I am going to say my father. Although he was "just an air force guardsmen" he did a lot while he was in the service. He retired after 21 years of service. He worked full time so that we could never want for anything and was in the guard because of a commitment and love for this country. I never understood his sacrifice of being gone on the weekend or being gone for a disaster especially since he traveled with work. Now after seeing my husband transition from national guard to army I understand better that you do what you need to for your family even if that means you aren't there and you leave it up to a wonderful woman to take care of your child's emotional needs. I also have learned that he missed us more than we could fathom!!"

"My favorite person in the service is my father. He was in the Army during the Cuban Missile crisis. Thanks for the giveaway. I hope that I win."

I want to give a shout out to my wonderful husband who is such an amazing man, soldier and priesthood leader in our house. Though we are new to this lifestyle he has been an amazing rock as we transition. I am one lucky girl!!

I would like to give a special shout out to my dad who served over three years in the USAF and during the Korean war. Who had lost his knee cap fighting for our freedom during ground conflict due to a close mortar explosion. My dad wanted to become a Jet pilot, but due to having an inner ear disorder, and for getting injured in service, he could not become a full fledged pilot, and as a result, he was honorably discharged from service. My dad ended up raising me and my brother after my parents divorced, because our mom didn't want to. So my dad will always be my hero for more than one reason! I greatly miss my dad! He passed away back on Jan.24th, 2013 at the age of 78. And there hasn't been a day since his passing that I haven't thought about him! He is greatly loved, and dearly missed!

I would like to give a shout out to my amazing husband who is in the Army National Guard, he has been in the Guard for almost a year and is planning to go active some time in the near future. He selflessly serves for his country and to give his family a better life. He knows my dreams of being a stay at home mom and though infertility has gotten in the way of our dream he continues to work hard to provide me with the things I need. I love my Soldier!

I have had a father that served in the Army. My husband served in the Air Force. But my favorite (yes I am totally bias .. lol) Would be my son who is currently serving in the Army National Guard. He left in March for basic and AIT. I can not wait to see him and put my arms around him. I am so proud of him!!

With all the family and friends in the military that I know my Brother tops the list. Iraq once and Afghanistan twice all I. A 7 year time period back when tours lasted 15+ months. He is a soldier true to the core and is slowly making his way back into the civilian world. I am blessed to be able to talk to him each day as I know he fights the memories and trauma of war everyday.

my hubby and I are both vets and as such we have many friends serving or who have served. I couldn't just choose one! :0)
