The purpose of this event is to showcase “The Woman Beyond the Uniform“
Kerri Brantley for Ms. Veteran America 2013
Kerri is an American Soldier, a nurturing mother, loving daughter, loyal sister and
compassionate friend. She has been in the US Army National Guard since 2006, started out as a
Private First Class then went through officer candidate school in 2009 and is now a Captain
working as a finance and a public affairs officer.
Kerri has three Children: Ben, Aden and Savannah. Her kids are the reason life is full
of love, laughter and blessing. In her life she has been through many trials and tribulations,
overcoming statistics, and eventually thriving in her faith, life and happiness.
During her deployment to Kuwait this past year; she was befriended by a pen pal
who encouraged her to participate in the 2013 Ms. Veteran America competition. She eagerly
accepted this challenge. As a soldier and a mother this cause is near and dear to her heart because it supports Final Salute, Inc and promotes awareness for the women beyond the uniform who serve this great nation.
Life can present challenges that are sometimes unavoidable and can cause hardships
that are unforeseeable. The alarming truth is that federal programs currently in place have some
gaps of protection for our female vets. With the founding of Final Salute, they are mending the
gaps and taking care of those who have fought to take care of the American people.
Please help Kerri by promoting awareness and through donations so we can make a difference and put an end to homelessness amongst our female veterans.
