Commissaries to begin selling beer and wine

Within the next few months commissaries will start selling beer and wine according to a memo written by a Defense Department official.

“The availability of beer and wine at military commissary stores will increase customer satisfaction and convenience, and align with common commercial grocery store practices” said Robert Wilkie, the department’s undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness. Beer and wine sales will begin within 60 days, however, hard liquor is excluded from the new policy, according to the memo. Commissary alcohol prices will be comparable to those at military exchanges.
