In celebration of Mother's Day, Procter & Gamble and Operation Homefront are saluting all military moms with the "Melissa & Me" selfie contest, featuring Army veteran, Paralympian, and mom Melissa Stockwell. Moms can share their selfie with Melissa's likeness at military base Commissary or Exchange locations and be entered to win a $200 Open Table or a $200 Spafinder gift card. The contest, which runs through Monday, May 14, is a part of the Start Strong, Stay Strong campaign, which provides an online community for military moms across the country.

"I've met some extraordinary military moms through the Start Strong, Stay Strong campaign," Stockwell said. "This selfie contest is a wonderful way to connect with more of these incredible women. P&G and Operation Homefront support our military families year-round and believe in the importance of the heroes who keep their families moving forward while loved ones are deployed."

Entrants 18 years and older may take a selfie at a Commissary or Exchange with the campaign signage featuring Melissa Stockwell and submit the image to by Monday, May 14. The contest is limited to one entry per e-mail address. Twenty potential winners will be selected on or around May 15 by random drawing and they will be notified by the contact information (email or phone number) used to enter the sweepstakes.

The Start Strong, Stay Strong campaign, launched in April and offers military moms a network of support – online and in commissaries and exchanges around the world – so they may connect with their communities, explore local events and discover motivational stories. Whether they are welcoming a new child into the home, managing day-to-day household needs through relocations, adjusting to family life with a wounded veteran, or settling into new schools and communities, P&G and Operation Homefront are here to help military moms start strong and stay strong throughout their service to our country. Moms can view a special video message from Melissa Stockwell about the campaign.

Through the online community,, military moms can access the information they need wherever they live, all year long. They will discover things to do, find local resources in their community, unlock savings, explore an online marketplace, and much more.
