SCHOFIELD BARRACKS — July 25, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service marks a historic milestone, celebrating 119 years of serving Soldiers and Airmen and their families.

July 25, 1895, General Order No. 46 established the exchange on military installations, directing post commanders to set up an exchange at every post.
In honor of the anniversary, the Schofield and Hickam exchanges are planning in-store events and a special Military Star card promotion. Shoppers who use their Military Star card on July 25 will receive 5 percent off their in-store purchases.

The discount is not applicable to fuel, tobacco, uniforms and accessories, Exchange Protection Plans, food court or gift card purchases.

The Military Star card’s everyday discounts of 10 percent off fast food and 5 cents off per gallon of gas will be applicable, but cannot be combined with the 119th anniversary 5 percent discount offer.
