DALLAS — Soldiers and family members can learn how to improve their health through the Army and Air Force Exchange Service’s “Operation Be Fit.”

Operation Be Fit is part of AAFES’ total health initiative focused on improving the health of mind, body and soul of every member of the military family.

Healthy nutrition options, fitness programs, family activities and overall wellness information are just a few of the tips provided on the website, which is easy to use, and provides health information for all levels, from novice to expert. 

“(AAFES’s) commitment to this issue goes beyond the supplements and running shoes found in our stores,” said Air Force Chief Master Sgt. Jeffery Helm, enlisted senior advisor, AAFES. “Providing fitness tips and nutritional information is just one of the many ways we strive to meet the needs of our patrons.”

Operation Be Fit features events that promote a healthy lifestyle. One example is the Great American Smoke Out day, set for Nov. 18. 

AAFES will partner with www.UCanQuit2.org to promote smoking cessation. The smokeout is an event aimed at aiding participants who pledge to go smoke free for a day, on the road to a smoke-free life.
