2011 Hometown Hotties Finalist Amanda Mertz-

Hometown: Louisville, Kentucky

Birthday: November 21

What qualities do you look for in a man?
Obviously I’m attracted to guys who are bigger so they can protect me, because I’m little! I also love guys who can make me laugh.

Would you ever date a guy in the military?
Definitely. There’s nothing sexier than a man in uniform, because it says they’re strong and courageous. So bring it on, boys.

What was your favorite part of the shoot?
I loved that it was American-themed, all red, white, and blue.

Did you girls do anything to unwind afterward?
We went and took a dip in the ocean. It was a lot of fun because we got to let loose and be natural.

What’s your message to the guys overseas?
Thank you all for serving. And when this issue comes out, I hope to be hanging on all your walls!

2011 Hometown Hotties Champ Melanie Iglesias-

Hometown: New York City

Birthday: June 18

What’s it like to be a military pinup?
It’s kind of crazy—you never know who is looking at your picture. I can’t believe that guys stationed all over the world are seeing these photos. It’s a huge compliment.

What do you admire about guys in the military?
I think you have to be very brave to enlist—that’s something that is auto­matically very sexy.

If you had to go into battle, what would you take to defend yourself?
Nothing! I wouldn’t need a whole army, because I am absolutely insane. I would probably just grab a knife and go to war.

What was your favorite part of the shoot?
We tried a group shot with all of us in the ocean. It was beautiful, but at one point this huge wave hit and almost washed Kaitlynn away! I had to pull her back to shore to make sure we didn’t lose her. We needed her in order to make this the sexiest shoot possible.

Any message to the troops?
I want to say thank you to everybody out there fighting for our country, because I feel like you guys aren’t shown enough appreciation. That’s why I’m really happy to be here.

2011 Hometown Hotties Finalist Kaitlynn Carter-

Hometown: Portsmouth, New Hampshire

Birthday: September 4

Do you like a man in uniform?
I think the right question would be, who doesn’t like a guy in uniform? A uniform represents someone who is brave and unselfish and has given up something in order to protect our country. All of that in itself is very sexy.

Do you have a favorite military movie?
Top Gun! I don’t think Tom Cruise has ever had a sexier role. Top Gun is such a fun movie to watch because I know I could never fly a plane like that, and I think it’s so cool that some people actually can.

Have you ever been the passenger in a fighter jet?
No, but I would love to be! One time I went to an Air Force base in Ogden, Utah and flew in a fighter jet simulator, and it was impossibly difficult. I had the thing rolling and flipping over and crashed after, like, 40 seconds in the air. I really have no idea how people go up there the first time.

What was your favorite part of the shoot?
The shoot was a lot of fun, but really the best part was the reason behind it, to make this special issue for the military.

2009 Hometown Hotties Champ April Rose-

Hometown: Chicago

Birthday: November 3

How did the shoot go?
It was amazing! No offense, Chicago, but Hawaii is warm and beautiful and just doesn’t compare to home. Plus, I love representing the military, even if my outfits weren’t government-issued.

Are military guys sexy?
I think it’s totally sexy that you sacrifice part of your life to go defend your country and your family. The fact that a man is willing to give up everything he has shows he is selfless, and that’s a really attractive quality.

If you had to go into battle, what would you take with you?
I would take a bazooka. I mean, how can you go wrong with one of those?

What would you like to say to your fans overseas?
I just want to say thank you to everyone out there. You guys are the ones doing all the hard work, and we really appreciate the freedom you’re fighting for.
