Here’s What Happened the Week of February 20, 2017
It’s hard to believe this was the last full week of February, but here we are, staring down March already. We’re excited to finally share Joint Base San Antonio on our site along with an incredible #IamMILLIE story that speaks to the importance of saying goodbye to your tribe.
We’ve included links (for easy sharing), the copy for the posts (in case you’ve already used up all your creative juices today), the hashtags (for optimal millennial reach) and the MILLIE logos and branding information (in case you want to feature us on your front page or something).
If you’re one of our partners, please send us what’s been happening in your world lately by emailing me at email@example.com.
