New Benefits for Veterans 

New benefit welcomes home all who served honorably with exclusive pricing, reconnection to military family at

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is officially welcoming home 18.5 million honorably discharged Veterans with a lifetime online military exchange shopping benefit. Veterans can now shop online at, marking the first expansion of military exchange privileges since 1990.

“The Exchange is honored to open its virtual doors to millions of deserving
Veterans,” said Exchange Director/CEO Tom Shull, a Vietnam-era Army Veteran
who worked tirelessly to secure the change in Department of Defense policy
after joining the Exchange in 2012. “There are many generations of service
members who have not been properly recognized. This new benefit acknowledges
their service and welcomes them home. This is something Veterans can enjoy
the rest of their lives.”

Veterans will find a wide assortment of national-brand merchandise and military-exclusive pricing at Shopping the Exchange online reconnects Veterans with their military community, allowing them to remain Soldiers and Airmen for life.

Every purchase Veterans make online will help improve the quality of life for those who wear the uniform today as Exchange earnings support critical military Quality-of-Life programs, including combat uniforms below cost, fitness centers, child development center and youth programs on Army garrisons, Air Force Outdoor Recreation programs, school lunches for Warfighters’ children overseas and more.

“This is a virtuous cycle,” Shull said. “As a Veteran myself, it is an honor
to pay forward support to active-duty service members and their families.”

Excitement for the new benefit has been building for months thanks to social media shout-outs from Mark Wahlberg and Marcus Luttrell, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Richard Rawlings and other celebrities. More than 380,000 Veterans verified their eligibility to shop at
