Stand at attention

Today commences the 3rd annual Stand At Attention competition between the 5 branches of the United States Military. The competition’s goal: raise money for military families in need.

The competition hosted at the Triangle Towne Center in Raleigh, NC begins at 10 am eastern time and will continue until the last service member is still standing (or 8 pm when the mall closes). In the event of a tie, the branch that has raised the most money will be declared the winner.

Remember, while all money raised goes to help military families in need, if you choose to donate- make sure it goes into the bucket of the branch you wish to see victorious. At the end of 10 hours if there is a tie- the tie breaker goes to the branch that raised the most money.
