SAN LUIS OBISPO, CA -- Local airman, SrA Mykal T. Tanner of Mountain Home Air Force Base, ID, is the latest to win prizes in McMillan Study Guides' GOLD MINE Sweepstakes™. McMillan, the premier publisher of self-study materials for US Air Force members, awarded SrA Tanner the first prize, which includes an iPad® 2 and McMillan's all-in-one PDG Suite study app.

Since 2007, McMillan has awarded 60 Airmen with prizes totaling more than $60,000 through their sweepstakes. Each prize package gives winners the option of a Windows® or Mac® product, and a complimentary McMillan study guide, to encourage Airmen to use their new device while preparing for test day.

"Our GOLD MINE Sweepstakes are just one more way we give back to those who serve. Together with our guides, these Airmen can make the most of their new laptop, tablet or MP3 player," explained Gayle McMillan Smith, president of McMillan Study Guides Inc.

SrA Tanner, an avid user of McMillan study products, added, "I recently purchased PDG GOLD and Master Your CDC. Not only are they fun and easy -- but they work!"

SrA Tanner joins grand prize winner, SSgt Clyde A. McNeil of Misawa Air Base, Japan, and second prize winner, SSgt Stephanie Tognotti from Lackland Air Force Base, TX, in the troop of fourth quarter winners. SSgt McNeil selected a high-performance HP® Envy laptop and a copy of McMillan's best-selling PDG GOLD software, while SSgt Tognotti chose an iPod touch® with McMillan's MP3 AudioBooks.

Airmen who purchase and activate McMillan's PDG GOLD or Master Your CDC software are automatically entered into the sweepstakes. Enlisted Air Force personnel may also enter without purchase. For complete sweepstakes rules, visit McMillan's website at
