Veterans Can Start Shopping at Exchange Online Starting Today, And It’s Tax Free!

Due to the changing environment and force reductions, the Defense Department’s Executive Resale Board voted to allow online access to honorably-discharged military veterans. This benefit is live starting today and could return upwards of an additional $100 million to the military communities.

Currently, only active duty servicemembers, members of the Guard and Reserves, military retirees, 100-percent disabled veterans, Medal of Honor recipients, and the families of these groups are eligible to shop at AAFES locations, either online or on-base.

Online shopping access will be available to all honorably discharged veterans of the United States Armed Forces (honorable or general under honorable conditions). Although shopping priveleges won’t be available until November, you can verify online shopping eligibility right now at

Note that this new benefit only includes allowing veterans to shop online, not at the physical stores located on bases.
