I had the fortunate opportunity to attend the new Military Clothing Store grand opening a Fort Irwin California. Fort Irwin is the location of the National Training Center for desert warfare. Tens of thousands of troops train there every year and buy a lot of Raine field gear in both the Military Clothing Store and in the Dustbowl Retail store. The new Irwin Military Clothing Store reflects the Army Air Force Exchange Service’s new retailing model. It has a very professional, finished feel. Upper management from AAFES was in attendance.
