DALLAS – Army Lt. Col. Matthew Cox has arrived for duty as a military assistant to the director/CEO with the Army And Air Force Exchange Service at the AAFES headquarters in Dallas.

According to their website, “Since 1895, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service has gone where Warfighters and their families go to provide quality, tax-free merchandise and competitive, military-exclusive pricing on the goods and services military communities need—regardless of location, risk or challenge. Exchange earnings provide dividends to military Quality-of-Life programs.”
