Commissaries sure have changed since the modern commissary benefit began on July 1, 1867! But we are proud to say that commissaries have been steadfast in their support of the military community, even as the stores have evolved with the times.
That’s why, as we count down to the 150th anniversary of this benefit later this year, we can’t help but reflect on our history. We want to know what the commissary benefit means to you, so please share your thoughts, feelings, stories and pictures below!
We’ll start by sharing what this benefit means to us. It means contributing to recruitment & retention, delivering great savings in a safe & secure shopping environment and, most of all, supporting the people that are the lifeblood of our military communities around the world!
Service members and their families give so much for our nation, so whether you are looking to save money on your groceries and household supplies or catch up with an old friend over coffee and conveniently pick up some essentials to take home, we are here for you.
