Exchange Celebrates Month of the Military Child With Prizes, Events at PXs, BXs

DALLAS – Throughout April, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service is saluting America’s youngest heroes worldwide with free events, activities and an exclusive sweepstakes during the Month of the Military Child.

Starting April 1, the Exchange will give away military “brat patches” at PXs and BXs worldwide. Military children can pick up the collectable patch, an exclusive accessory designed by the Exchange for military children since 2017, at checkout while supplies last.

“Military children serve an important role, and the Exchange is honored to celebrate their service and sacrifice,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Kevin Osby, the Exchange’s senior enlisted advisor. “America’s youngest heroes can join in the fun at PXs and BXs with free activities, events and a chance to win cool prizes all month long.”

Events and offers include:
• An exclusive sweepstakes giving away more than $23,000 in top trending toys and Exchange gift cards to military kids. Authorized shoppers 18 and older can enter on their favorite military child’s behalf at through May 2.

• Six in-store events for military kids to gather with friends and try out the latest games and toys at select stores: Play-Doh on March 30; Furby Furblets Event on April 6; Hasbro Gaming Games Event on April 13; Disney Princess Event on April 20; Marvel Event on April 27; and Star Wars Event on May 4.
