The "webisode" tells the story of how Elise went from a career in hospitality sales management to 1940s-style pin-up girl for a cause.
Seven years ago, Elise founded the nonprofit organization, which sells calendars to raise money for veterans hospitals and medical facilities across the country.
As her schedule began to grow, Elise left her career to devote herself full-time to the cause, which is close to her heart - her late grandfather Lou served four years in the Army as a pharmacist during World War II.
Elise approached AOL about her story, reaching out to the company's production team in New York to pitch the idea.
A production team in Los Angeles later contacted her to schedule a shoot.
Once the video hit AOL's site, it reached 1.4 million hits within 24 hours, Elise said.
"It's pretty amazing," she said. "I've been a fan of this series for years, and an AOL member since the 1990s."
Since first launching, Elise said she has received emails from veterans and supporters from across the country thanking her for the work she has done.
Many have called her a "ray of sunshine."
"As a vet, I appreciate all that you and your girls are doing for my fellow vets," wrote one veteran. "It's pin-up girls like you that have kept us going when death was looking us right in the eyes."
For the first time in its history, a few celebrities are featured in this year's calendar, including reality TV star Shannon Tweed, actress Meagan Tandy and sportscaster and NBA scout Bonnie-Jill Laflin.
"Pin Up for Vets is an organization close to my heart since I come from a military background," Laflin said. "Lifting the morale of our troops is the least we can do for those men and women who risk their lives on a daily basis to ensure our safety.
"To put a smile on the faces of hospitalized vets around the world is such a wonderful feeling," she said. "They are my heroes."
Tandy said she wanted to be part of this year's effort because she, too, has close ties to the military.
"(The) military has a huge presence in my family as both my father and uncle were in the Vietnam War. My sister-in-law is also a Marine," she said.
"I've developed great respect for those who have served and are currently serving. Anything that supports the men and women who have fought and who continue to fight for our freedom, I will always support 100 percent."
Professional photographers Tim Hunter and Austin Young shot the photos in the new calendar spread.
In addition to donating money to veterans facilities throughout the country, Elise - with other pin-ups in tow - visits the bedsides of veterans across the country, including those at Jerry L. Pettis Memorial Veterans Medical Center in Loma Linda.
She also donates calendars to those serving in the military and veterans.
Elise added that she is proud to see the organization succeed and carry the spirit of her grandfather, who was proud of his service and would talk about it often.
"I hope he knows somehow what I'm doing because it is a tribute to him and his service," she said.
Calendars are $10 each and can be purchased at pinupsforvets.com.
