FORT BELVOIR, Va. -- Fort Belvoir is unveiling a new, 270,000 square-foot post exchange that military officials say is the largest of its kind on the East Coast and an example of the military's effort to rebrand and modernize the old exchanges.

There was a special ceremony Wednesday morning on the base, which has increased in size considerably the past few years under military base realignment.

The new exchange is designed to serve the broader military community, and not just Belvoir families.

It will also feature a home and garden section and an expanded food court.
