Memorial Day Photo Contest 2011

Two weeks ago, we asked our Facebook fans to post photos showing what Memorial Day meant to them. We ended up with eleven submissions--which is a great response rate for the first photo contest we've ever done!--and then asked our fans to vote on their favorite photo. The winner received a prize package from HRNM. Featured in this blog post are the winner and two runners-up. Thank you to everyone who participated and everyone who voted. We hope to hold another photo contest in the coming months!

The winner: Sherry Voyles, with her photo of "observing and paying tribute to our veterans during the annual ceremony at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery," St. Louis, Missouri:

Second place: Melissa White-Contreras, with "They don't remember their grandfather, but they are still proud that he served..."

Third place: India Sharpe Meissel, with "Legion Riders meeting our brave men and women at the Atlanta airport."
