Commissaries offer taste of home while overseas

Amber Korpalski selects vegetables from the produce section in the Camp Foster commissary Jan. 8. “The commissary stocks products from the U.S. not available in off base stores. The convenience and familiarity of these products from home can be a great comfort to a family living overseas,” according to John Zaher, the store director of the Camp Foster commissary. Korpalski is a military family member. (Photo by Lance Cpl. Elizabeth Casez)
