Last week we told you that 21 Fort Hood spouses were nominated for Military Spouse of the Year, and the winner was the person we first introduced you to, Marily Considine. We find out what happens next for Marily, on a world-wide stage.
On Wednesday's you can find Marily Considine reading to preschool children. Other days, home schooling her own children, or volunteering for the USO, all of this while battling breast cancer.
But she hopes to add one more title, Military Spouse of the Year. That's for all branches and worldwide.
And Marily's on her way, now that she's won Fort Hood. "I received an email and I went and looked online and they had the list of the winners and I saw my name. I was very, very excited," she said.
But Marily's co-worker says it's not something she's bragging about it. "She's very shy about it. She didn't even know she was doing that, and then I started hearing people saying congratulations, I say for what and then she told me and I'm like you should of told me and she was so humble about it," said Patricia Brickford.
In the first round of voting, Fort Hood had more than 2,400 votes. That's the most votes out of all the installations. But Marily still needs more support.
"Two more rounds of voting and a judge's panel before we decide a winner," said Marily.
Though winner or not, it's a title she says all military spouses deserve.
"Along with supporting their service member there are a lot of things that many military spouses are doing across the world that this is a great way to recognize that work," said.
If Marily wins, she plans to advocate to have care center for sick spouses in every instillation. A place for comfort, help, and answers while they're far from family and their spouse is deployed.
Fort Hood has never won Military Spouse of the Year, and only one spouse has won from the Army. Marily hopes to make this a second for the Army and a first for Fort Hood.
