News Release
SCHOFIELD BARRACKS – On July 25, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service marks a milestone — 121 years of serving Soldiers, Airmen, retirees and military families.

On July 25, 1895, General Order No. 46 established the exchange on military installations, directing post commanders to set up an exchange at every post. Since then, exchanges have faithfully served alongside service members wherever they are called to serve, from Bagram to Barksdale, Benning to Baghdad and beyond.

To celebrate 121 years of service and support, shoppers who use their Military Star card from July 22 through July 24 will receive double reward points, earning 4 points for every $1 spent. With the Miltary Star rewards program, for every 2,000 points earned, shoppers automatically receive a $20 rewards card.

Food specials
The 121st anniversary celebration continues July 25 at the Schofield Popeyes, which is offering two pieces of chicken — mixed or tenders — and a biscuit for $1.21.

Military members, retirees and their families can help the Hawaii Exchange celebrate 121 years of family serving family. Anniversary weekend festivities include Subway with three cookies, Burger King Whopper Jr, Starbucks Birthday Cake Pop and any size drink in all food facilities for $1.21 each.
