MOUNTAIN HOME AIR FORCE BASE, Idaho -- When Sandy Juul began working for the Army & Air Force Exchange Service, Jimmy Carter was the President and a gallon of gas cost 59 cents. Counting President Carter, that is a span of six Commanders-in-Chief.

Juul, military clothing sales store manager for the MHAFB exchange, started her career in 1977 and has spent the last 36 years serving generations of servicemembers.

"I enjoy working with people," said Juul. "It's an honor and a privilege to serve those who serve.

Juul began her exchange career as a temporary cashier during the holidays in 1977. Over the next 36 years, she had stints as supervisor of the front register, customer service and hardlines. She also has been in charge of the military field exchange the MHAFB BX runs during the summer at the Idaho National Guard Orchard Training area.

While the jobs may have changed over the years, Juul's dedication and devotion to the troops never wavered.

"Thinking back on the past 36 years reminds me of what an honor it has been to work with phenomenal associates," said Juul, who is finishing her AAFES career as the military clothing sales manager. "They stay focused on our customers, work hard and have a good time while doing that."
