Commissary patrons help drive Feds Feed Families support
Last year was a banner year for the Feds Feed Families campaign. The Department of Defense collected more than 3.2 million pounds of food and personal hygiene items for donation to local food banks and pantries. Stateside commissary employees and their patrons contributed almost 50 percent or a whopping 1.6 million pounds of DODs total. The Feds Feed Families campaign runs June through Aug. 31. This year commissary employees and patrons are pulling together again to collect donations of much needed nonperishable food and personal hygiene items. Prepacked donation bags, which can be purchased in store and placed in collection bins when entering or leaving, are available. Customers may also bring items from home to donate. Donated items are picked up by the installations and delivered to local food banks or pantries.

Happy Birthday

While the Defense Commissary Agencys 25th birthday on Oct. 1 is fast approaching, the agency salutes the people it has had the privilege to serve for the last 25 years: the men, women, and families of the military community  active duty, reserves, and retirees.
In August, DeCA observes the 226th birthday of the U.S. Coast Guard. Congress established the Coast Guard  at the time it was called the Revenue Cutter Service  on Aug. 4, 1790.
The Coast Guard is a multi-mission service unique among the U.S. military branches. It has a maritime law enforcement mission as well as duties as a federal regulatory agency. It is not controlled by the Department of Defense. Until 1967, it had been a branch of the Treasury Department, but then control was transferred to the Department of Transportation.
In the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, it transitioned to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in 2003. It can be transferred to the Navy Department by the president at any time or by Congress during wartime. This transfer has only occurred twice: during World Wars I and II.
The Coast Guard began selling groceries to its community after the Navy began its commissaries in 1909-1910. After the World Wars, all services, including the Coast Guard, discovered that commissaries were a valuable inducement to enlistment and retention. In 1949, although the new Armed Services Commissary Regulation (ASCR) did not control the actions of the Coast Guard stores, they used the ASCR as a guide to their own operations.
The Coast Guard never had many commissaries in the modern sense of the word. Instead, most USCG grocery stores were located inside their exchanges. By the 1980s, there were 15 such stores; 11 of them were located on bases on or near the Atlantic Ocean, two were near the Pacific, and two more were located near the Great Lakes.
When DeCA started up in 1991, it assumed control of one of the few true commissaries the Coast Guard owned: the store on Governors Island, located south of Manhattan, squarely on the approach to New York Citys harbor. Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) actions shut down the Governors Island installation in 1996, but DeCA took control of the Coast Guards commissary at Kodiak Coast Guard Station, Alaska, located on Kodiak Island in the Aleutians, at virtually the same time.
Today, DeCA continues to manage the Kodiak store. Its the only Coast Guard store on DeCAs books. Located in a large building that also houses the stations exchange, credit union, post office, and several concessionaires, it is one of DeCAs most unique stores. Its exterior is unglamorous, but it was designed specifically to stand up to harsh weather and heavy snow.
No exterior signage advises what functions are housed inside, but its safe to say the stations population knows exactly where their commissary is; after all, it supplies vital goods for people stationed at a location that truly is at the far end of the pipeline.

Be Prepaired

Although military commissaries aren't equipped to predict the next emergency, they do encourage their patrons to use their benefit to be prepared.
The Defense Commissary Agency routinely offers savings compared to commercial stores on the necessary items for any emergency, said agency Sales Director Tracie Russ.
It would be nice if we could accurately predict the impact of the next storm when it came to power outages, interruptions in available water and store closures. However, we do know from past experience its better to plan for the unexpected, Russ said. Thats why we work with our industry partners to offer deep discounts on many of the food products and other items our patrons need to be prepared.
As they take stock in their state of readiness, military patrons can shop their local commissaries for the following items, considered appropriate for disaster preparedness: beef jerky and other assorted meat snacks, soup and chili mixes, canned goods, powdered milk, cereals, batteries, airtight bags, weather-ready flashlights, tape (all-weather, heavy-duty shipping and duct), first-aid kits, lighters, matches, lanterns, candles, hand sanitizer and anti-bacterial wipes. Specific items may vary from store to store.
According to a May 13 forecast from the Weather Channel (https://weather.com/storms/hurricane/news/2016-hurricane-season-forecast-atlantic-the-weather-channel), the 2016 hurricane season is expected to have 14 named storms, eight of which will be hurricanes with three of the hurricanes potentially being category 3 or higher.
The North Atlantic hurricane season runs June 1 to Nov. 30 and covers the North Atlantic Ocean, the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. Tornado season runs from April to July.
Emergency preparedness officials suggest having a disaster supply kit that includes the following items:
" Water  at least one gallon daily, per person (three-day supply for evacuation, two-week supply for home)
" Nonperishable foods  canned meats, fruits, vegetables, dried fruits, nuts, raisins, cereal, crackers, cookies, energy bars, granola, peanut butter, and foods for infants and the elderly (three-day supply for evacuation, two-week supply for home)
" Paper goods  writing paper, paper plates, paper towels and toilet paper
" Cooking items  pots, pans, baking sheets, cooking utensils, charcoal, a grill and a manual can opener
" First-aid kit  including bandages, medicines and prescription medications
" Cleaning materials  bleach, sanitizing spray, and hand and laundry soap
" Specialty foods  diet and low-calorie foods and drinks
" Toiletries  personal hygiene items and moisture wipes
" Pet care items  food, water, muzzle, leash, carrier, medications, medical records, and identification and immunization tags
" Lighting accessories  flashlight, batteries, candles and matches
" Battery-powered or hand-crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible)
" Duct tape, scissors
" Multipurpose tool
" Copies of personal documents (medication list and pertinent medical information, proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certificates and insurance policies)
" Cell phone with chargers
" Family and emergency contact information
" Extra cash
" Emergency blanket
" Maps of the area
" Blankets or sleeping bags
