Reservists from the 446th Airlift Wing are encouraged to take advantage of savings on popular grocery items at the several Commissary On-site Sales coming up in areas from where wing Reservists hail. 

Commissary On-site Sales are open to Guardsmen, Reservists, retirees, active-duty servicemembers, and their dependents. 

The Defense Commissary Agency has expanded its reach to Guard and Reserve members by bringing these On-Site Sales to military members in areas with military populations not served by a nearby commissary. Sale items include paper products, soap and cleaning products, canned goods, sodas, sport drinks, water, laundry detergents, and a variety of other products at savings of 30 percent or more.

Customers must present an appropriate Department of Defense identification card that authorizes commissary privileges in order to shop. Cash, checks, debit and credit cards are accepted for payment. The use of coupons is highly encouraged. 

Upcoming area sales are:
Sept. 18-19, at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, Roseburg, Ore. (AAFES will also be at this event).
Sept. 18-20, Army Training Center, Yakima, Wash.
Sept. 25-27, Pendleton Army National Guard Armory, Pendleton, Ore.
Oct. 2-4, Bend, Ore. (tentative)
Oct. 17 and 18 Lewiston Army National Guard, Lewiston, Idaho. 

The sale hours are generally from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information about On-site Sales, visit the Defense Commissary Agency's Web site at
