Me and My Soldier

Me and my Soldier is about celebrating special moments between soldiers and their Little Troopers.

Last year I took a photo of my soldier and our Little Trooper, it was such a tender moment I thought many others must have captured these moments in time too, the Me and my Soldier calendar 2013 was a great success I knew it had to run again for our 2014 calendar!

The charity has grown massively the last year and so has the number of people who know about us which equalled hundreds of entries which was so amazing but also meant we needed more months in the year! The images evoke so many feelings and emotions in everyone, military or civilian and I definitely cried some tears. It was so so hard judging and there was quite a few on the deciding panel but the results will be a totally adorable calendar everyone can have on their kitchen wall.

There was so many images we had some great ones for Christmas cards so this year we have Me and my Soldier cards to spread Christmas cheer!

Below I am sharing a few of the images chosen so you can see just how special they are!
