Shopping Fort Huachuca Exchange pays dividends

Soldiers and their Families shopping and dining at Army & Air Force Exchange Service stores and restaurants on Fort Huachuca generated $ 459,697.25 last year for Army quality-of-life programs.

Over the past 10 years, the Exchange has provided more than $2.4 billion in dividends to military programs.

“Roughly two-thirds of Exchange earnings are paid to the Services’ morale, welfare and recreation programs, while the other third is used to build new stores or renovate facilities,” said Fort Huachuca Exchange General Manager Jeff Hyatt.

The Exchange’s mission of providing quality goods and services at competitively low prices while generating earnings to support quality-of-life efforts means that the Exchange benefit is more than finding a good price on merchandise. This structure ensures that shoppers who take advantage of their benefit at the Fort Huachuca Exchange or online at www.shopmyexchange.com are working to improve their communities.

“When customers shop and dine at the Exchange, they are investing in their own community, making it a better place to live and work,” Hyatt said. “100 percent of Exchange earnings serve Soldiers and their Families.”

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is a joint nonappropriated fund instrumentality of the Department of Defense and is directed by a board of directors which is responsible to the secretaries of the Army and the Air Force through the Service Chiefs of Staff.  The Exchange has the 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.
