Military commissaries around the globe kicked off their annual “Salute the Women in the Military” campaign Aug. 2. In addition to celebrating the contributions of America’s military women, the annual campaign also generates much-needed funds for the Women In Military Service For America Memorial Foundation–and you can help!

When you purchase selected items from your local commissary, participating manufacturers make donations to the Foundation. If you are an authorized commissary patron, simply do your weekly grocery shopping and the Foundation will be the beneficiary of a portion of the proceeds. During the promotion, which runs from Aug. 2-Sept. 5, you can also enjoy in-store savings by using the valuable coupons located in the “Salute Women” themed flyer, available at your commissary.

The campaign also includes an opportunity to win a commemorative Women’s Memorial pen, personalized with your choice of service branch emblem. Fifty winners will be selected at random from entries received at commissaries. Entry forms are located in the coupon flyer. Sponsored by C. Lloyd Johnson, Co., Inc., the “Salute Women” campaign is in its 15th year and has generated over $700,000 for us. So look for the “Salute the Women in the Military” campaign at your local commissary and enjoy great commissary savings while you help support your Memorial again this year.
