    Dedication of the Aragon Dining Facility

    Built in the 1970s, the Aragon Dining Facility is dedicated to the memory of Staff Sergeant Jose R. Aragon, a native of Fountain, Colorado. Aragon was killed in action on May 16, 1965, in the Republic of Vietnam. His citation for the Bronze Star highlights his heroic actions during an accidental explosion at Bien Hoa Air Base. Despite the dangers of fire, exploding ammunition, and flying debris, he assisted in rescuing injured comrades and clearing the flight line, saving many lives. His selfless dedication to duty reflects great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.

    Why is there a surcharge on my meal?

    Surcharge rates at Air Force dining facilities are established by Congress and help cover operational costs. The surcharge is proportional to the cost of your meal. For example, if your meal costs $1.00, a surcharge will be added to your total. Similarly, a higher meal cost will result in a higher surcharge. This ensures the dining facility can maintain quality service and operations. Unfortunately, we do not have any control over those rates.

    Why do prices vary between different bases?

    Prices can vary based on the region and the supplier for each dining facility. Different bases may have different suppliers, resulting in varying costs for identical items. This means that an item may cost more or less at another base depending on their supplier’s pricing.

    Why isn’t my Per Diem enough to cover my three meals per day at the dining facility?

    Per Diem is intended to supplement your Basic Allowance for Subsistence (BAS), which is designed to cover your meals, not those of your family. When you are TDY to Peterson and staying in Lodging, your combined Per Diem and BAS provide a daily amount for subsistence. This ensures you have enough to cover your meals during your stay.

    Can the dining facility pre-make certain items, like hamburgers, to reduce wait times?

    To ensure the highest quality and freshness, HQ AFSVA Golden Eagle Standards require that certain items, such as hamburgers, be cooked to order. This policy helps maintain the best possible dining experience for our patrons.

    Why did I pay for a bun when I only requested a hot dog?

    The pricing for items like a hot dog is based on the complete recipe, which includes both the meat and the bun. Even if you choose not to take the bun, the price remains the same because it reflects the cost of the full item as per the Air Force recipe standards.
