I’ll give you ‘American Sniper’ and an ugly cry face

Nope. Never. Not on your life. Forget about it. It ain’t happnin’. 

That’s what I’ve been saying when asked to host giveaways on my blog for the past several years. But I must admit:  ‘American Sniper’ left me a weeping, snotty, patriotic mess when I saw it back in February, so I am proud to partner with Grace Hill Media and Warner Brothers to host my first Giveaway!

Yep, you read that right. I, Lisa Smith Molinari, of somewhat sound mind and very round body, have solemnly agreed to give away one ‘American Sniper’ Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Combo Pack to one person who leaves a comment at the end of this post by noon on Monday, May 25th — Memorial Day. Your comment — one comment per household please — should state how you plan to honor our fallen military heroes this Memorial Day. I will select one winner randomly from the commenters and will announce by 5pm on Memorial Day. If you won, send me your address via my contact page, and I’ll send the Combo Pack to you in a flash. Just be sure to stock up on tissues for that ugly cry face — sniff!

More good news:  ‘American Sniper’ is being released onto Blue-ray/DVD/Digital on May 19th — AND — one dollar from every purchase up to 1 MILLION DOLLARS will be donated to Wounded Warrior Project, a national nonpartisan organization whose purpose is “to raise awareness and to enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.” To buy the movie on Amazon, use this link:  http://amzn.to/1zKw2VJ

If you haven’t seen the movie, here’s a synopsis from the press release:

Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield, and as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname “Legend.” However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world. Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the spirit of the SEAL creed to “leave no one behind.” But upon returning to his wife, Taya (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can’t leave behind.


In honor of Military Appreciation Month and upcoming Memorial Day, I am proud to help spread the word about Chris Kyle’s story, and I wish to thank all US Servicepersons and their families for their sacrifices!

    I’m going to be waking up early on my day off to try and get the chance to speak with my deployed husband. If the wifi is terrible and we aren’t able to talk, I’m going to swallow my frustration and sadness and try my best to communicate that I love and appreciate him. I honor past service members and present by doing what I can for the service members around me: whether it’s my husband, family, friends or my patients. Being there for them beyond a Facebook photo of a flag will by my March 25th.

    I am going to hang the flag high, talk to my kids about what the holiday means and perhaps a BBQ. God bless all of the service men and women who sacrifice so much for all of us!

    This Memorial Day I plan to honor our fallen men and women by a prayer. While a small act, I feel my kids are too young to be included in understanding the sacrifices our service members commit. Our oldest, who is three is just starting to see what sacrifices she has to make having a Daddy in the military. My husband has been gone since December on deployment and it is our kids first hand experience at being apart from their Daddy for such an extended period of time. So this Memorial Day, I will pray for those fallen men and women and the sacrifices they and their families gave for our country. They are not forgotten.
