Shopping access to military exchanges expands to DoD, Coast Guard civilian employees

The Department of Defense announced that it is expanding access to the military exchange stores to DoD and Coast Guard civilian employees with a Common Access Card.

This will include in-store and online exchange shopping privileges to civilian employees who work in the U.S. and in U.S. territories and possessions.

Those eligible will now be able to shop in Army and Air Force Exchange Service stores, Navy Exchange stores, and Marine Corps exchanges.

Retired civilians and honorably discharged veterans will receive access to the exchanges’ online stores, but will not have in-store shopping privileges. This access is to take effect by Oct. 8.
