The Army & Air Force Exchange Service contributed more than $205 million for military quality of life programs last year, the service announced last week in a press release.

“Thank you to airmen, soldiers, guardians, Marines, sailors and military families around the world for shopping their Exchange and making our military communities great places to live and work,” said Exchange Director/CEO Tom Shull. “When you shop the PX or BX, fill up at an Express, pick up a meal at the Exchange food court or place an order at, you help bolster vital support to warfighters and their families.”

All exchange profits are reinvested in the local community, the press release said, adding that about 60% typically goes to support quality of life programs at bases.
