PETERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Colo.  —  The Army & Air Force Exchange Service’s senior enlisted advisor is working to ensure Airmen at Peterson Air Force Base get the products and service they deserve.

While visiting Peterson, Chief Master Sgt. Sean Applegate toured Exchange facilities and met with Airmen and community members to address how the Exchange can serve them better.

“I always look forward to visiting Airmen in person and hearing how we can customize Exchange support,” Applegate said. “I want Peterson to know that the Exchange is engaged and ready to tailor offerings to the unique needs of the community.”

Applegate is one of 35 active-duty service members assigned to the Exchange. The Exchange also employs about 35,000 civilian associates worldwide.

Exchange prices are very competitive, Applegate said, and shoppers can find name brands online at www.shopmyexchange.com.

“These competitive prices coupled with tax-free savings in-store and online give shoppers tremendous value,” he said.

Shoppers do more than save when buying from the Exchange. Money from every purchase goes back to improving Airmen’s quality of life at Peterson, he said.

“For every dollar earned, historically 67 cents comes back to the military community through the Air Force Services dividend,” Applegate said. “Last year sales at the Peterson Exchange generated more than $498,000 on behalf of Services programs. Every time shoppers buy from the Exchange, they are making life better for their entire military community.”
