VIRGINIA BEACH, Va (NNS) -- The Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) announced April 8, that NEXs and Navy Lodges worldwide will remain open in the event of a U.S. government shut down.

"NEXs and Navy Lodges are non-appropriated funded activities and therefore will not be affected by any government shut down," said Rear Adm. (Sel) Glenn C. Robillard, commander, Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM). "NEXs will continue to operate at their normal hours."

The mission of the Navy Exchange System is to provide quality goods and services at a savings, and to support Navy quality of life programs.
