Liens is a mother of three and wife to PFC Raymond Liens at Fort Lee in Virginia. Being a mom is a full-time job, which Liens takes seriously. She humbly spends her days caring for her children, and going the extra mile. Her day starts before the rest of the Liens wake, and goes well into the night. As a military mom, she keeps her children on a daily schedule which includes learning, crafts, and play time. This holistic approach is what makes the Liens’ home a happy one.

Liens was celebrated during an assembly at the Commissary in front of her family, friends, and fellow military moms. To recognize her for being a “Great Mom”, Armour surprised Liens with $2,500 in free groceries at the Commissary.

“Michelle Liens exemplifies the spirit of the Armour ‘Great Moms’ campaign,” said Jennifer Zmrhal, Smithfield Foods senior director of marketing. “She has not only shown dedication to her family, but also to our nation. We are honored to celebrate and reward Mrs. Liens with $2,500 in free groceries.”

The Armour “Great Moms” campaign is a national program designed to highlight and reward great moms across the country by recognizing and showing appreciation for these unsung champions.

The campaign includes monthly events to surprise and celebrate “Great Moms” across the country for their extraordinary efforts in their communities and at home.

“This means the world to me,” said Liens. “I consider myself a good mom, doing everything I can for my kids and husband. This gift will really lift a burden, especially since my kids love to eat! It’s great that Armour provides this. It’s just awesome.”
