LOS ANGELES, Sept. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sean "Diddy" Combs and CIROC Ultra Premium Vodka have partnered with Maxim to select the FIRST CIROC Military Brand Ambassador. This dedicated individual will work with other members of the brand's marketing team to create programming that resonates with members of our armed forces while placing an emphasis on social responsibility. 

All non-active military personnel of "honorable" discharge or military spouses will be encouraged to submit an original video on identifying why they would be the ideal candidate to represent the CIROC brand within the U.S. military community. CIROC and Maxim will select the top 10 candidates and publish their entries on for friends, family, and colleagues to vote them into one of the top 5 finalist spots. Combs and the brand will then select the official winner and introduce him or her during the CIROC Veteran's Day celebration on November 12th at the Lewis-McChord Joint Base in Washington State.

A strong supporter of the US Military, Sean "Diddy" Combs states, "I have always been in awe of the level of commitment and dedication exhibited by the men and women of our armed forces. I am honored to have the opportunity to work with a member of our Armed Forces."
