SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii – The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is making important wellness services more convenient and accessible for retirees, veterans with service-connected disabilities and other members of the community.

As part of its BE FIT 360 program devoted to holistic wellness, the Schofield Exchange offers:

• Durable Medical Equipment shop (which sells products such as braces, crutches, CPAPs with accessories, breast pumps, maternity supplies and more).

• Optical and optometry services.

“Bringing these services on to installations is a Quality-of-Life multiplier for retirees, disabled Veterans, military families and the Schofield community as a whole,” said Hawaii Exchange General Manager Michael Ryan. “Holistic wellness is a key aspect of maintaining readiness and resiliency, and the Exchange is making accessing these services easier and more convenient.”

In 2020, 4.1 million disabled Veterans and certain caregivers worldwide became eligible for in-store Exchange shopping privileges. These and other Exchange shoppers, including retirees, family members, DoD and Coast Guard civilians, and active-duty service members, are all authorized to use the wellness services, which accept TRICARE, FEDVIP and most insurances, when applicable.

More information on wellness options can be found at ShopMyExchange.com/wellness. Shoppers can also find more information on the BE FIT program, including restaurant nutrition guides, wellness tips, the latest in fitness gear and more on the Exchange’s BE FIT Hub page, ShopMyExchange.com/BeFit.

In Hawaii, authorized patrons have four Exchanges they can shop at:

  • Hickam
  • Marine Corps Base Hawaii Kaneohe (not an AAFES facility)
  • Navy Exchange (not an AAFES facility)
  • Schofield Barracks


Since 1895, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service (Exchange) has gone where Soldiers, Airmen, Guardians and their families go to improve the quality of their lives by providing valued goods and services at exclusive military pricing. The Exchange is the 54th-largest retailer in the United States. 100% of Exchange earnings support military communities.
