When the time comes to transition from Airman to Airman for Life, those who have selflessly served can continue to serve, with purpose, as a member of the Army & Air Force Exchange Service team.

Long known as a top employer of Veterans, the Exchange is family serving family, offering meaningful careers, with competitive pay and benefits, for all who raised their right hand, took the oath and served with distinction.

In November, the Department of Defense’s largest retailer was named to Military Times’ Best for Vets: Employers list for the eighth year in a row, recognizing the Exchange’s programs to attract and retain Veterans, inclusive hiring practices and more. Also in November, the Exchange earned its 12th Military Friendly Employer designation from VIQTORY, publisher of G.I. Jobs Magazine, earning the publisher’s Military Friendly Employer Silver Award.

The Exchange continues to lean forward to hire Air Force veterans and retirees and those who support them. This past August, the organization crossed the finish line on its goal of hiring 50,000 veterans and military spouses. Today, the Exchange is raising the bar even higher as we work to hire a total of 75,000 veterans and military spouses by 2026.

We are honored by every veteran who joins Team Exchange and are fully committed to equipping our newest teammates for success. The Exchange’s veteran retail management training program is a great example of the training tools available to ensure our team is properly prepared to thrive in management roles.

We are honored that so many veterans continue to help the Exchange carry out its mission and look forward to seeing the new heights our veteran teammates reach as they support the best customers in the world.
