Army & Air Force Exchange Service

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES) is a joint military command with two primary missions: to provide the military community with quality merchandise at low, tax-free prices and to improve the quality of life for the military community by providing a dividend to support Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) programs. AAFES operates with non-appropriated funds.

AAFES operates more than 3,100 facilities in more than 30 countries. In addition to Exchange (PX) stores, AAFES also provides a variety of quick service food offerings, convenience and specialty stores.


AAFES saves the military community an average savings of 20% compared to the competition. In addition, all purchases are exempt from sales tax.

In 2008, AAFES revenues totaled $10.8 Billion. Two-thirds of AAFES earnings are returned to the military community through dividends to MWR programs.
