One of our retired military members sent us this and asked us to post it.

Seems like good stuff.

Especially after a magnificent Guns Save Life meeting in Rantoul where members passed the hat to raise money for seriously injured servicemen to come to Central Illinois to hunt pheasants, deer and sporting clays as part of their “Healing outside of a Hospitals” project.  We sent the local organizers away with over $1000 (well, $1000.25 if memory serves).

Anyway, our petulant commander-in-chief has reportedly closed base stores as part of his temper tantrum for the government shutdown.

Sam’s Club is offering a free membership to military families for the duration of the government shutdown.

(Spouse Buzz) – If you live near a Sam’s Club and are in the market for bulk groceries, this could be your lucky day. According to Sam’s Club officials all military members will be allowed to shop in the members-only warehouse store for free until the government shutdown ends and the commissaries reopen.

“In appreciation for the service that military personnel provide our members and communities, Sam’s Club locations near military bases will waive membership requirements for military personnel, retirees and their families so they may continue saving on everyday goods and groceries,” club officials said in a statement.

Edit 4:45 p.m. ET, Oct 3: According to a corporate spokesperson ALL Sam’s Club locations are now participating in the military waiver program. Please be patient with your local store as they pass word down to the employees answering the phones and your questions.

  1. I – We have used this unexpected benefit twice already- Sam’s club folks in Champaign were very gracious. THANK YOU! And to answer the question on products sold by one versus the other the answer is YES the PX-BX-MCX stores sell exactly the same items as WalMart but at usually at higher price.
