FORT LEE, Va. – All military commissaries would be operational in the event of a government shutdown, the director of the Defense Commissary Agency announced late today.

DeCA’s announcement that its stores would continue to serve military members and their families if a government shutdown were to occur, affects 249 commissaries in 12 countries and two U.S. territories worldwide.

During a potential shutdown, commissary customers would be able to access the DeCA website, http://commissaries.com. However, that site would not be updated during the shutdown. Customers would be able to access the Department of Defense website, http://www.defense.gov for any breaking news that affects service members and government civilians.
