“The Exchange and commissary are working together for the good of the military community, bringing convenience and value to all who serve,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Luis Reyes, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor. “Both retailers are all-in to support our warfighters and their families.”

The joint effort showcases the strength of military resale, said Army Command Sgt. Maj. Tomeka N. O’Neal, DeCA’s senior enlisted advisor to the agency director.

“This initiative is another example of the military resale community partnering to offer our customers the best that the installation has to offer for commissary and Exchange shopping,” O’Neal said. “Collaborative efforts such as this reinforce the value of the installation as the No. 1 destination to best serve our service members and their families.”
