The mission: to serve those who serve. For 120 years, the Army Air Force Exchange has provided top of the line merchandise at the lowest prices to military personnel and their families at home and abroad. Service at The Exchange doesn’t stop at the door. In addition to great products and services, two-thirds of Exchange earnings go to improving the lives of service men and women, and their families through MWR and Air Force service programs. More than 4,400 facilities around the world, and more than 4,000 associates deployed in combat zones since 9/11 makes The Exchange a leader in serving the needs of US military personnel wherever their duty takes them. When soldiers are wounded, the Exchange is there to help. In fact, they've hired more than 500 wounded veterans since 2010. When kids are far from the comforts of home, the Exchange is there to provide more than four million meals a year through their school lunch program for military dependents overseas. The Exchange is the gold standard in service to those who serve.
