The Fort Meade Exchange facilities will mark the Army & Air Force Exchange Service's 117th birthday on Wednesday with a host of savings and specials.

In 1895, the War Department issued General Order 46, directing commanders to establish an Exchange at every post.

To celebrate the Exchange's birthday, shoppers using their Military Star Card to fill up at the Express gas station from Wednesday through July 27 will receive a discount of 17 cents per gallon.

The Military Star Card also will pay dividends at the food court on Wednesday as diners can take 20 percent off orders at Exchange-operated restaurants such as Burger King, Anthony's Pizza and Charley's grilled subs.

Express patrons also will receive free 20- and 30-ounce fountain drinks and 20-ounce Fresh Java until 1:17 p.m. Wednesday.

The birthday savings can be used online at shopmyexchange.com.

The website will offer a one-day sale on hundreds of products including a 40-inch Sharp AQUOS 1080 LCD TV for $717, up to 25 percent off name-brand watches and 66 percent off select fine jewelry.
