Fort Jackson Soldier a Finalist for Father of the Year
Watch a video from Lt. William Edwards' family explaining why he deserves the award, and then cast your vote!
A Fort Jackson soldier needs your votes to win the 2012 Military Fatherhood Award.
Lt. William Edwards is one of three finalists in the competition, presented by the National Fatherhood Initiative, according to a story in The State.
Even while he was deployed to Iraq for 14 months, Edwards remained in contact with his four children by making videos, sending letters and chatting online.
Edwards is the only Army finalist up for the award. The other two finalists represent the Air Force and Navy.
Each finalist's family created a two-minute video to explain why their military dad deserves the award. Watch the Edwards' video to hear from his wife and children.
Anyone can vote for Edwards on the National Fatherhood Initiative Facebook page. One vote per day is allowed until voting ends May 20.
