Nomination Title: Ms Veteran America Competition

When and where did this event take place?

This event took place in October 2012, at the Pentagon City Ritz Carlton - Arlington, VA.

Briefly describe the nominated event including its purpose and results (up to 125 words):

Ms Veteran America salutes the "Woman Beyond the Uniform". Ms Veteran America showcases the grace, beauty, poise and talents of women who have served in our nation's military. This event also honors women who have made the ultimate sacrifice during their service.

As women, some of our femininity becomes lost when we wear the uniform; because we have to blend in with the boys. Our grace, poise, beauty and talents become camouflaged during our military service.

Along with being Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, and Sailors; we are also Mothers, Wives, Daughters, and Sisters!

This event sold out in its first year and was covered by national media outlets.

Proceeds from this event provide housing to homeless women Veterans and their children.
