Yokota Air Base – The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is making important wellness services more convenient and accessible for Yokota retirees, Veterans with service-connected disabilities and other members of the community.

As part of its BE FIT 360 program devoted to holistic wellness, the Yokota Exchange offers:

  • A Durable Medical Equipment shop which sells products such as braces, crutches, CPAPs with accessories, breast pumps, maternity supplies and more!
  • Optical Services

“Bringing these services on to installations is a Quality-of-Life multiplier for retirees, disabled Veterans, military families and the Yokota community as a whole,” said Yokota Exchange General Manager Andrew Defelice. “Holistic wellness is a key aspect of maintaining readiness and resiliency, and the Exchange is making accessing these services easier and more convenient.”

In 2020, 4.1 million disabled Veterans and certain caregivers worldwide became eligible for in-store Exchange shopping privileges. These and other Exchange shoppers, including retirees, family members, DoD and Coast Guard civilians, and active-duty service members, are all authorized to use the wellness services, which accept TRICARE, FEDVIP and most insurances, when applicable.

More information on wellness options can be found at Shoppers can also find more information on the BE FIT program, including restaurant nutrition guides, wellness tips, the latest in fitness gear and more on the Exchange’s BE FIT Hub page,
