"Exchange gift cards are an excellent way to send troops exactly what they want as they can select their own gifts," said the Exchange's Senior Enlisted Advisor Chief Master Sgt. Jeffry Helm. "Whether the service member who receives the card wants a cappuccino from Starbucks, some beef jerky from the Exchange or a tank of gas for the family car, the recipient gets support that is tailored to their need."

While only authorized military shoppers can redeem Exchange gift cards, any American can send them by simply calling 800-527-2345 or logging on to<> and clicking "Support Your Troops" and then the "Gift and Calling Cards"<> icon.

From there, Exchange gift cards, ranging in values from $10 to $500, can be addressed to a specific Soldier, Airman, Sailor or Marine or sent to "any service member" through the American Red Cross, Fisher House Foundation, USO, Soldier and Family Assistance Center, Air Force Aid Society or Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society.
