Description

The Illustrated History of American Military Commissaries is the first history ever written about the retail food outlets, located on installations of all four military services to serve military personnel, military retirees, and their families. Commissaries provide retrail groveries to eligible patrons at an average savings of over 30 percent, thereby stretching the military paycheck and encouraging re-enlistment. This two volume set tells the story of the commissary benefit's origin, revolution, challenges, and accomplishments.
