We're taking a break from our Dad Cents theme to make a special announcement about our 2011 Military Fatherhood Award: NFI congratulates all the nominees for our 2011 Military Fatherhood Award™. These dads are not just heroes to our nation, but are also heroes at home!
That said, there can only be one recipient of the coveted Military Fatherhood Award™. To that end, NFI’s panel of judges has painstakingly narrowed a field of nearly 600 nominees down to just three finalists. And now, for the first time ever, we’re passing the baton to America to choose the winner!
