Laptops for Flat Tops

As many of you know my fiancee is a U S Marine. He is no longer active. He served for 9 years. When we first started dating he was serving and finishing his reserve duty. I never had to worry about him being overseas. But i have many friends and family members who still are active and serving overseas. I was contacted by Lauren Fisher, Dittoe Public Relations with this wonderful contest information for military families with loved ones serving overseas. It is hard having a loved one so far away. I have one friend in particular who has served and continues to serve in the US Marines. He has a wife and 5 kids. Serving and proctecting his country is what he does. I thank him, and pray for his safe return to his family. It is because of him and others like him that we live in this wonderful country with freedoms. Have you thanked a soldier, veteran, or family member lately?

Here is the information of the contest, feel free to pass it on to any military family you know.


At All-American Direct, we are committed to providing quality products through an "All-American" sales organization to every home in America. One of the ways that we are embracing that commitment in 2009 is by running a national campaign to give 2 laptops with webcams away every 2 months to a deserving home that has an immediate family member serving in the armed forces overseas.

Times in America are tough, and they can be even tougher for families who have loved ones serving on the front lines to protect our freedom.

Would a brand new laptop and webcam help you keep in touch with your husband, wife, son or daughter, mom, dad, brother, or sister?

Would a brand new laptop help to improve your quality of life, especially since an important contributor to your home is now serving our country overseas?

Submit a couple paragraphs telling us your story of need, and detail why your family should be picked out of thousands of Americans to win this month's laptop.

The prize package includes a laptop with a built-in webcam, as well as an additional webcam that can be sent to your loved one who is serving overseas.

If you win, you will be contacted by our executives, and a laptop will be sent to your door!

-Intensity of need as expressed in the essay
