Exchange Enlisted Advisor visits NTC and Fort Irwin

The senior enlisted advisor for the Army & Air Force Exchange Service visited here, Sept. 11.

During his visit, Chief Master Sgt. Tony Pearson toured the Exchange, met with Fort Irwin personnel and addressed Exchange-related issues here.

The Exchange is a joint non-appropriated fund instrumentality of the Department of Defense with a retail mission to provide quality products services and food to servicemembers, their families, Reserve and Guard members, plus military retirees. Exchange sales generate earnings to supplement Army Morale Welfare and Recreation activities as well as Air Force Services.

Chief Master Sgt. Pearson is one of 72 active duty servicemembers assigned to Exchange to carry out this mission; the Exchange also employs more than 42,000 civilian associates world-wide.

“For every dollar earned, 67 cents comes back to the military community from the MWR dividend. Last year Fort Irwin activities got back more than $578,000 – so shopping at the Exchange is a win-win,” said Pearson. “You get great products at a great price and your spent money comes back to the installation through the dividend.”

During his visit, Pearson met with Fort Irwin customers and Exchange associates, answering questions and concerns about the Exchange.

“Part of my job as the senior enlisted advisor is to visit bases throughout the world and find out what Exchange can do better to serve its customers and fix existing problems,” said Chief Master Sgt. Pearson.

Pearson said that the Exchange’s goal is to be the number one choice for retail shopping. Revenue at the Exchange creates money that goes to support the troops.

“[Additionally], military clothing is the only place our military troops can buy uniform items on base without mail ordering them, making it our goal to have what they need when they need it so they can be outfitted properly,” Pearson added.
