American Spirit Cover Photo Contest Winners
March 16, 2012 by OH Blog
We decided to involve our fans in helping us get creative and find a cover design for our Facebook timeline cover photo. Over the last week, over 230 amazing photos were submitted by our community, and we had a tough task in choosing just five as favorites to win. Check out our American Spirit Cover Photo Contest Album and you will understand just how challenging this was for us. Thank you to everyone who shared their special moments in time with us.
Without further ado, the winner of the just released HD iPad is….

We only had a little time to spend as father and son, but I know you wouldn't have left, if you weren't fighting for everyone. So I'll take care of mommy and wait till you come home, I can't wait to pick you up and show you how much I've grown! Daddy don't you worry, keep doing what you do. Mommy and I are OK, we couldn't be more proud of you.-Jax Berrios
my four year old son on Veterans Day while Daddy was serving overseas. The flag was heavy and blowing in the wind but he held on and was so so proud ! Taken near Fort Riley, KS-Melissa Oden Bradfield
Fan Favorite, and winner of an Amazon Gift Card….
This picture is of my husband and I when he came home for R&R last April. He flew into DFW, and was overcome with joy when he saw me and 20 family members and friends there to surprise him. When all the hugs, kisses, tears, and dust settled, we snuck off to the side and my good friend Rachel Stricklin captured this amazing moment so beautifully. I am one proud Army wife and this picture still makes me choke back the tears.-Jenny Lloyd
