If you’re one of those people who have always wanted to be on TV but just didn’t fit the bill for Military Wives of Alaska, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Coming Home, or Army Wives (oh wait, those folks are real MilSpouses, never mind) – now may be your chance.
NBC has put out a casting call for servicemembers, veterans and military families to be featured in the new show celebrating “Unsung Heroes.”
According to this DoD story, they are looking to reward “selfless people” for “always paying it forward.”
From the story:
The show will involve someone — whether a friend, spouse, family member or even an acquaintance — surprising a deserving person with “the ultimate gift.” The recipient can be someone who always puts others first, deserves a lucky break, is underappreciated, saved someone’s life, or has made a difference in other people’s lives.
No word on exactly what this “ultimate gift” is … but I think it’s fair to say that anything tagged the “ultimate gift” is a good thing. Plus it’s always fun to see someone you know and love recognized for putting others before themselves, “ultimate gift” or not.
Want to apply? It sounds easy enough. Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the following info: name, occupation, contact info, explanation of why the person you’re nominating deserves attention and current photos of both you and the person you are submitting.
