The time has come to give recognition to those military spouses who have gone above and beyond to help deployed troops and their families.
The Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) will hold a Patriot Family Salutes the “Military Spouse” Calendar contest from May 11- July 28. Entrants are invited to write an essay of 300 words or less explaining what the nominee has done to support the military community during a deployment. Nominees must be authorized AAFES shoppers.
The 12 winners will receive a $500 AAFES shopping spree and have their essays published, along with their photos, in a “Military Spouse” calendar that will be available at all AAFES BXs/PXs in early November.
“I can’t wait to read the entries,” said AAFES’ Chief Marketing Officer Richard Sheff. “This is a great opportunity to highlight the difference military Families are making in their communities.”
A complete description of the “Military Spouse” contest rules can be found online at http://www.aafes.com/Patriot_Family/videocontest.asp. The contest is open to all authorized exchange shoppers. Entries must be postmarked or emailed to Patriot Family at aafes.com no later than July 28, 2008. No purchase is necessary to win.
