AAFES Exchange Stores to Remain Operational During Sequester

03/11/2013

DALLAS -- The Army & Air Force Exchange Service announced it does not foresee any changes to its day-to-day operations during the current government sequester.

"We expect Exchange facilities to be fully functional throughout the sequester," stated the Exchange's Chief of Staff Col. Thomas Ockenfels. "We continue to remain flexible as we help soldiers, airmen and their families thrive in this environment. Whether it's a main store, military clothing or a fast food restaurant, all operations will continue."

Additionally, sequestration is not expected to result in the closure of Exchange facilities.

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service provides authorized patrons with merchandise and services at competitive prices, and generates non-appropriated fund earnings as a supplemental source of funding for military morale, welfare and recreation programs, according to the organization.
