WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congresswoman Kay Granger (R-Fort Worth) announced that the Defense Department intends to open a new Commissary store at Naval Air Station – Joint Reserve Base, Fort Worth today.  The new store will provide grocery items to the thousands of active, reserve, guard and retired military personnel and their families who call the Fort Worth area home.  The store will be operated by the Defense Commissary Agency and is expected to open sometime before December of this year. 

“I’m proud to be able to make this important announcement, particularly at a time when our servicemen, women and their families are sacrificing so much for our freedoms here at home.  Commissaries are an important military entitlement and our local servicemen and women and their families will benefit immensely from this new store opening,” said Congresswoman Kay Granger. “As a Member of Congress, I am always proud to stand by our troops and applaud their heroic efforts. They give so much to our nation and we owe them our steadfast support.”
