Scott giving away exclusive military brat patch, free treats

To celebrate the start of a new school year, the Scott AFB Exchange is saluting military children for their service and sacrifice with giveaways and in-store events July 28.

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is partnering with Vanguard on a military brat patch, available for free while supplies last at the Scott AFB Exchange. Stripes Alterations coupons, valued up to $5, will allow kids to have the patch sewn on a personal item. The patch honors the selfless spirit of Warfighters’ children.

“A new school year is a perfect time to recognize the important role of military children,” said Rita Sheridan, Exchange general manager. “The Scott AFB Exchange wants to help kids see their value as they get ready to go back to school, and these patches help accomplish that.”

Kids who wear or bring their brat patch to participating Scott AFB Exchange restaurants July 28 will receive a free treat as well. Treats vary by restaurant and may come in the form of a side, fountain drink, dessert or other item. Offer is valid July 28 only.

Also that day, students—and their parents, too—can put their best foot forward in the new school year with style tips, skincare advice and more at the Look Cool for School beauty event, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Book bags will be given away (available in store only) with skincare, fragrance or cosmetic purchases of $30 or more. Shoppers can also redeem a coupon online or in store all day July 28 for $5 off a $30 skincare, fragrance or cosmetic purchase—or $15 off a $60 purchase with a MILITARY STAR card.

OTHER BACK-TO-SCHOOL DETAILS INCLUDE:

▪ Expanded layaway through Aug. 31 to include laptops, hold computers, notebooks, tablets and iPads.

“Sending kids back to class doesn’t have to break the bank,” Sheridan said. “With tax-free shopping and military-exclusive pricing, the Exchange offers tremendous value for Airmen and their families.”
