The Army and Air Force Exchange Service operates numerous shoppettes as well as the Post Exchanges on Fort Bragg, which I’ll cover next week along with the Defense Commissary Agency.
The shoppettes offer shopping and dining options all over Fort Bragg, ranging from simple gas stations to furniture stores.
In addition to these shopping options, Soldiers are also eligible to apply for a Military Star Card, which is an AAFES only credit card. Members of the Army, Air Force, Marines Corps, Coast Guard and Navy are all eligible to apply for this card.
Military Star Cards can be used at most AAFES locations, as well as certain Armed Forces Recreation Center resort hotels. It can also be used at Clothing Sales stores.
So, where on Fort Bragg can you use your Star Card? Where are the shops located? And where is the Class Six?

The Airbone PX is located next to Tucker Gym, sandwiched between Ardennes Road and Tullidge Way.
