“The Exchange has gone where our Soldiers, Airmen and families have gone for 123 years, and every moment has been a privilege,” said Christine Harlan, general manager. “We want to celebrate our anniversary with those we serve — the best customers in the world.”
The Exchange’s storied history includes investing 100 percent of earnings in military communities. About two-thirds of Exchange earnings are contributed to Quality -of-Life programs, such as Child Development Centers, Youth Programs and fitness centers on installations around the world.
In the last 10 years, the Exchange has contributed more than $2.4 billion to these programs.
