TSP SECURITY

The security of your TSP account depends on you being safe everywhere online. That means you should enable security features such as passcodes, two-step authentication, and biometrics like fingerprint access or facial recognition. And remember, the TSP does not support any third-party apps. Providing your TSP account credentials to third-party software or applications may jeopardize your account security.


BBQ SAFETY IN HOUSING

It’s strictly forbidden to barbecue on balconies. Do NOT use BBQ grills indoors or store them in hallways or basement floors of your building. BBQ grills can be used beyond a 15-foot distance from a building or structure.


ARMY & AIR FORCE EXCHANGE SERVICE CELEBRATES 126TH ANNIVERSARY WITH $1.26 EXPRESS DEALS IN JULY

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is celebrating its 126th with special deals at Express stores and restaurants throughout July. On July 25, 1895, the War Department issued General Order 46 directing commanders to establish an exchange at every post. Since then, exchanges have faithfully served military members wherever they are called to serve. To mark the anniversary, USAG Ansbach Soldiers and other military shoppers can enjoy $1.26 deals on snack favorites and more at the Katterbach and Illesheim Expresses from July 1 to 31. On July 25—the Exchange’s official anniversary—shoppers will receive $1.26 off all combo meals at participating Urlas Exchange restaurants. “Since July 25, 1895, it has been our honor to serve those who serve and give back to the military community,” said Katterbach Express Store Manager Dean Schluter. “Through war, natural disasters and even global pandemics, the Exchange is privileged to be there for our Airmen, Soldiers, Guardians, retirees, Veterans and military families.”
