Former Marine Captain Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour Takes Aim at Facebook Fan Page Launch by Giving Back

FlyGirl Logo on FacebookWashington, D.C., - Vernice “FlyGirl” Armour has a list full of firsts:  First African-American female combat pilot, first African-American female motorcycle cop for the Nashville Police Department, and one of the only women to have played professional football.  And now, “FlyGirl,” the recipient of a presidential nomination, will take on another first:  launching her new Facebook fan page like nothing that’s been done before – and giving back in the process.

FlyGirlThis Saturday, October 15 at 2:00 p.m. EDT, “FlyGirl” is hosting a very different kind of fan page launch at  The one-hour event will include live streaming video of Vernice interacting with her fans; giveaways of her book, coaching sessions and gift certificates; a live Q & A session on overcoming obstacles; and other contests and surprises, all in a fun, relaxed party-type atmosphere.  There will even be virtual drinks served in “The Cleared Hot Ready Room” as she calls it.

“I’ve always been known for playing hard in all that I do, and I really wanted to do something really different and meaningful when launching my new Facebook fan page,” says Armour.  “I’ve stood on some great shoulders to get where I am today, and I’m using this launch to give back and thank my supporters.”      

“FlyGirl” says after the event, she plans to hold weekly live events on her Facebook fan page to help people develop a breakthrough mentality and accomplish goals that matter.

“Times are tough and people need to be inspired to turn that fear into fuel,” says Armour.  “Whether it’s trying to climb the corporate ladder, find a job, make more money, develop a passion into a livelihood or whatever else, I hope I can use Facebook as another tool to help people reach their goals.”
