Commissaries celebrate April - Month of Military Child
April is the Month of the Military Child, and your commissary is celebrating with giveaways and savings for the whole family - pets included! "Children in military households face unique challenges because of the demands of military life," said Joyce Chandler, DeCA's acting sales director. "So, at the Defense Commissary Agency, we want to acknowledge them and do all we can to provide their families with great values on quality products they can depend upon." DeCA's industry partners - vendors, suppliers and brokers - are collaborating with commissaries in April to offer discounts beyond everyday savings. Overseas stores may have substitute events for certain promotional programs. Customers are asked to check their local commissary for details on dates and times of the promotions in their stores. "As we honor the Month of the Military Child, don't miss out on these opportunities to save even more," Chandler said. "For everyone in the family, the
commissary is always worth the trip." For promotion details, visit http://www.commissaries.com/press_room/press_release/2013/DeCA_23_13.cfm.

About DeCA: The Defense Commissary Agency operates a worldwide chain of commissaries providing groceries to military personnel, retirees and their families in a safe and secure shopping environment. Authorized patrons purchase items at cost plus a 5-percent surcharge, which covers the costs of building new commissaries and modernizing existing ones. Shoppers save an average of more than 30 percent on their purchases compared to commercial prices - savings amounting to thousands of dollars annually. A core military family support element, and a valued part of military pay and benefits, commissaries contribute to family readiness, enhance the quality of life for America's military and their families, and help recruit and retain the best and brightest men and women to serve their country.
