FRANKFORT, Ky. – Boone National Guard Center Post Exchange store provides quality services to Kentucky National Guardsmen and BNGC employees.

“If I don’t have what they need in the store, I bend over backward to make sure that I get the product that they need,” said Barbara Green, Boone National Guard Center Exchange manager.

BNGC exchange provides a place where Guardsmen can purchase basic military apparel, order sewn uniform name tags and they can also place an order for their Army Service Uniforms.

“It’s convenient to drive 30 minutes from the office instead of 2 hours to Fort Knox,” said Staff Sgt. Justin Newman, Charlie Company 2/75thRecruiting and Retention Battalion. “This store makes life a lot easier for Guardsmen to run in and square away their uniform right before their monthly drill.”

Not only does the exchange offer great selection of merchandise but shoppers can take advantage of no sales tax on purchases.

“Barb Green is an awesome person,” said Capt. Reggie Brown, Kentucky Guard Deputy State training officer. “Always here when you need something and anything you need, she will find it for you.”
