For civilians working on base, it’s a convenient one-stop shop. We don’t have to leave the installation to get food or snacks thanks to the food court and Express.”

 

Purchase restrictions at Exchanges apply. Shoppers can visit aafes.com/exchange-stores/patrons-merchandise/patrons.htm for details. In-store shopping privileges for active DoD and Coast Guard civilians outside of the U.S., its territories and possessions are subject to host-nation agreements.
