What is the "Commissary?"

Answer:
Commissaries are stores frequented by authorized military identification holders. They are managed by the Defense Commissary Agency (DECA) and are required by law to sell items at prices set only high enough to recover item cost, with no profit or overhead factored into the item price, thus offering a considerable cost savings on grocery items.
