Exchange celebrates 118 years of service

DALLAS – The Army & Air Force Exchange Service celebrates a past, present and future of savings and service on July 25, the organization’s 118th anniversary.

In recognition of this historic milestone, the Exchange is offering two fantastic dining deals for authorized patrons to enjoy.

First, Express locations worldwide will be offering any size fountain drink or Gold Peak tea free from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on July 25. In addition, Exchange Burger King locations will be serving Whoppers for only $1.18 with the purchase of a medium size or larger drink or fry on July 25 and 26.

“Offering these deals to our patrons is just another way to thank current and former servicemembers for everything they do for our country,” said the Exchange’s Senior Enlisted Advisor Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson. “As we have done for 118 years, we will continue to go where they go to support them and their families wherever they are called to serve.”

While the Exchange’s dual mission of providing authorized patrons with quality merchandise and services at competitively low prices and generating non-appropriated fund earnings as a supplemental source of funding for military morale, welfare and recreation programs has remained largely unchanged over the years, the past twelve months have brought considerable change to the Department of Defense’s largest and longest-running retailer.
