Just in time for Veterans Day….
We have a winner!
A few months ago, a great contest was announced here, as well on some other sites and blogs;
"The Maid Brigade Veterans Franchise Giveaway, is a program that will
award more than $1.5 million in business ownership opportunities to 100+ veterans, creating more than 1,000 jobs nationwide."
Well, a winner was just chosen! It's Major Philip Piaget, of Crestview, Florida.
Bronze Star Medal with Valor Winner. Recipient of a Purple Heart,
campaign medals for Kosovo and Iraq and numerous Meritorious Service
Medals. Those descriptions all apply to Major Philip Thomas Piaget. Now
one more honor has been added: Gold Award in the Maid Brigade Veterans
Piaget, of Crestview, Fla., won the company's contest in time for
Veterans Day 2009. The father of four retired from the Army in September
after serving 20 years as an Airborne Ranger and entered the
franchiser's national contest the same month, noting that his life as a
leader of infantrymen and that of a quality Maid Brigade franchisee have
much in common. Compared to his daunting combat and diplomatic
assignments surrounding the efforts to quell sectarian violence and
insurgent attacks on Coalition Forces in Iraq, his road to franchise
ownership was smooth.
Philip was one of six finalists. Look
