JBSA kids can reserve Month of the Military Child brat patches online with the Exchange

By Army & Air Force Exchange Service Public Affairs Army & Air Force Exchange Service Public Affairs

During April, the Month of the Military Child, the Army & Air Force Exchange Service is saluting the nation’s youngest heroes.

The Exchange has partnered with Vanguard to create a free, limited-edition collectible iron-on patch celebrating military children who make Warfighters’ mission and focus possible.

The patch is available at all Joint Base San Antonio Exchanges for military children age 17 and younger.

For their safety and health during the COVID-19 pandemic, JBSA-Lackland, JBSA-Randolph and JBSA-Fort Sam Houston shoppers can reserve their patches by completing the reservation form online at Exchange Community Hub page at

Once local stay-at-home orders are lifted, the JBSA Exchanges will notify shoppers that their patches are ready for pickup. The reservation form will be available through April 30, while supplies last. Up to five patches per CAC-holding adult can be reserved.

“Military children sacrifice so their parents can serve our great Nation,” said Stacey Driggers, JBSA-Randolph Exchange Manager. “This collectible military brat patch is a way for the Exchange to recognize the way all JBSA Lackland, JBSA-Randolph and JBSA-Fort Sam Houston Exchange children serve as well.”
