Press Release

Operation Homefront, Head & Shoulders and P&G honor military spouses at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon
October 8, 2019


NASHVILLE, Tenn. — National nonprofit Operation Homefront, Head & Shoulders and P&G treated more than 80 military spouses to a special evening out on Saturday, September 28th.  The partnered organizations hosted a “Homefront Celebration” at the world-famous Wildhorse Saloon as an opportunity for military spouses to meet new friends, appreciate an evening of food and entertainment, and listen to guest speaker, veteran, Paralympian and mother of two, Melissa Stockwell.


“As a military spouse, you become familiar with resiliency very early on, and it’s not always easy to put your head down and face the challenges of military life,” said Stockwell. “That’s why events such as these Homefront Celebrations are so important. They create stability, connections, and comfort that these spouses and their families deserve.”


Operation Homefront, whose mission is to build strong, stable, and secure military families so that they can thrive – not simply struggle to get by – in the communities they have worked so hard to protect, hosts multiple Homefront Celebrations around the country each year.


“We are extremely grateful Head & Shoulders and P&G have enthusiastically embraced this opportunity to help us host a special evening to celebrate our military spouses in the Nashville area,” said Brig. Gen. John I. Pray Jr., President and CEO of Operation Homefront.  “These major brands clearly share our unwavering commitment to recognizing and supporting our military families for all they do to help protect the freedoms we, as Americans, enjoy daily.” 


Country music artist Kelleigh Bannen gave a special live performance in honor of the military spouses at the “Homefront Celebration.” All the spouses participating in the event registered on OperationHomefront.Org and were spouses of active duty military members, Guard and Reserve, and post 9/11 wounded, ill or injured.
