By Estella Estrumse JBSA-Randolph/Lackland Exchange Office

Pets make great companions for those long weeks spent at home during the COVID-19 pandemic. This May, they’ll even fetch 10 lucky military shoppers a combined $3,000 in Army & Air Force Exchange Service gift cards, without having to set paw outside the house.

From May 1 through May 31, authorized shoppers at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, JBSA-Randolph, JBSA-Fort Sam Houston and Exchanges worldwide can send in a patriotic-themed picture of their four-legged friends for a chance to win the Patriot Pet Just Say “Treat” Photo Contest. Two grand-prize winners will each receive a $500 gift card, while eight second-place winners will each receive a $250 gift card.

“We wanted to give our shoppers something fun and lighthearted to take their minds off the uncertainty and seriousness going on right now,” said Carrie Cammel, Exchange General Manager. “As always, our Patriot Pet contest is also a great way to recognize military pets for all the support and camaraderie they provide Warfighters and their families in stressful times.”

Authorized Exchange shoppers age 18 or older can find complete contest rules and enter to win at Winners will be selected on or about June 15.
