When Kathryn Morris began working for the Army & Air Force Exchange Service, Jimmy Carter was the President and a gallon of gas cost $1.19.

Morris, a Reorder Associate for the Exchange, started her career in 1980 and has spent the last 30 years serving generations of Soldiers/Airmen.

"Serving those who protect our freedom is extremely rewarding," said Morris. "It hasn't felt like a job to me - it's more of an honor and a privilege to have been able do this for so long."

Morris began her Exchange career as a Food Service Worker. Over the next 30 years, she also had stints as an Operations Assistant, Shift Supervisor and Store Manager.

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

"Thinking back on the past 30 years reminds me of what an honor it has been to serve those that serve," said Morris. "Energy prices may go up and politicians change, but waking up and going to work alongside the best customers in the world 2013 is just as exciting as it was my first day on the job."
