Marily Considine has been named Fort Hood’s candidate for Military Spouse of the Year, a competition through Military Spouse Magazine, on Jan. 22, and she moved on to the all-Army competition against the winning candidates from Army installations worldwide, which took place on Feb. 5.

Marily will find out if she won the all-Army voting on Feb. 21, and if she wins there, she will go on to represent the Army against all other branches of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Considine was nominated for Military Spouse of the Year by her sister, who found out about the competition through Military Spouse Magazine, without warning or knowledge of the nomination.
Considine began volunteering with Susan G. Komen after the news of her own breast cancer diagnosis came in September of 2010, in the midst of being an Army wife, a mother and a teacher.
