Commissary "Agent" Shopping

Recent activities have brought to the forefront the issue of having someone shop for eligible commissary patrons. It doesn't just apply to children with a deployed parent, but to other authorized patrons who may have difficulty shopping on their own.
Known as the agent privilege, it's for any authorized commissary shopper who needs assistance shopping or who cannot shop on his or her own behalf because of disability, illness or infirmity. That privilege also extends to grandparents, guardians or caregivers of children of service members who may not be available due to deployment or remote assignment.
The agent does not have to be an authorized commissary shopper. The military member may request an agent pass for approval to allow the individual who is the primary caregiver for the children of deployed parents to enter the installation. The installation commander authorizes agent privilege.
Non-military primary caregivers should contact the identification card section on the installation to determine what legal document, i.e., power of attorney, may also be needed to establish proof of caregiver status. At the same time, the individual can also ask what documents are required to enter the installation.
Upon verification of caregiver status, the individual receives written authorization from the commander's representative designating him/her as an "agent" to accompany the children. Usually, the letter is for a 12-month period, but it can be extended in cases of continued hardship.
Authorized shoppers, who are elderly or disabled, and unfamiliar with the "agent" privilege, should contact the identification card section on the installation to determine what proff is needed to have an agent shop in the commissary on their behalf.
