The Army & Air Force Exchange Service will offer honorably discharged Veterans the opportunity to verify their eligibility to shop the military exchanges tax-free at the Great American Trucking Show, Aug. 24-26 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas.
Starting Nov. 11, potentially 13 million honorably discharged Veterans will be eligible to shop the Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Marine Corps and Navy Exchange through shopmyexchange.com, shopcgx.com, mymcx.com and mynavyexchange.com. Veteran drivers can sign up to verify their eligibility during the truck show at the Exchange recruiting booth.
“The Exchange is honored to offer this well-deserved benefit to those who raised their right hands, took the oath and served our Nation with honor,” said Exchange Director/CEO Tom Shull. “There are many generations of service members who have not been properly recognized for their sacrifices. The Veterans online shopping benefit acknowledges their service and welcomes them home.”
The Exchange will also unveil its new patriotic truck wrap, which showcases the Department of Defense retailers’ support of deployed service members in remote and austere locations. Attendees who stop by the booth can also take part in giveaways and learn more about careers at the Exchange.
“The Exchange fleet is considered one of the best-kept secrets in the trucking industry,” said Karen Stack, Executive Vice President and Chief Logistics Officer for the Exchange. “Our compensation is competitive, and our employees are able to spend two nights or more every week at home with family.”
The Exchange employs drivers in 17 locations across the United States, including the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
“Some think you must have been in the military to work for us,” Stack said. “While we do hire a significant number of Veterans, we welcome qualified applicants from a variety of backgrounds.”
