For the first time since 1990, there has been an expansion of military exchange privileges and veterans can now shop online at ShopMyExchange.com. The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is welcoming home 18.5 million honorably discharged veterans with a lifetime online military exchange shopping benefit.

“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, said in a news release. “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 be able to shop with military-exclusive pricing at ShopMyExchange.com. Shopping the Exchange online reconnects Veterans with the military community. Every purchase veterans make online will help to improve the quality of life for those currently enlisted.

Exchange earnings support 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 in the release. “As a Veteran myself, it is an honor to pay forward support to active-duty service members and their families.”

According to the release, more than 255,000 Veterans verified their eligibility to shop at ShopMyExchange.com before the benefit’s official Nov. 11 launch.

To verify eligibility and begin shopping, Veterans can visit http://www.shopmyexchange.com.
