Shopping at the Exchange(01:12)
Staff Sgt. Rachel Garneau and Master Sgt. Jake Chappelle of the Air Force Reserve shop for name-brand products at an exchange store.
An exchange enables all Department of Defense ID card holders, including members of the Reserve and Guard and their dependents, to buy items like clothes, toiletries, furniture and appliances on base. All items are sold tax-free, and service members and dependents can also shop at any exchange, regardless of where they are stationed.
