There has always been confusion over the surcharge being referred to as a tax, according to DeCA Historian Dr. Pete Skirbunt.
"It's not a tax," Skirbunt said.

After the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, as the military mobilized for war, service members were reminded that the benefits of DeCA's nearly 240 stores, located in 13 countries, went far beyond the money they saved military families: As DeCA's historian, Peter Skirbunt, Ph.D., has pointed out, the commissaries helped maintain morale among service members and their families by making American-style groceries and brands available all over the world, offering stability, support, and a sense of community even as military personnel were transferred and deployed on unaccompanied tours.

"Immediately after the attacks, military installations buttoned up their security measures, creating long lines of cars as each vehicle was inspected at the gate," said Dr. Peter Skirbunt, who wrote about DeCA's response to Sept. 11 in The Illustrated History of American Military Commissaries.
"That made it difficult for families living on base to easily leave and return, encouraging them to do all their food shopping at the commissary. "The security measures also made it difficult for [commissary] employees, deliveries and off-post patrons to reach the stores, but given the severity of what had happened, few people complained," Skirbunt added. During the attack on the Pentagon, two members of DeCA's Washington Office escaped injury although their physical location was not far from where the plane came through, said Skirbunt, the DeCA historian.

"Some people erroneously call the surcharge a tax, but this generalization is inaccurate and misses the point," said Defense Commissary Agency Historian Dr. Pete Skirbunt.
"People are surprised to learn that the surcharge first appeared in 1879, and its history features various applications and rates through the years leading up to 1983 when it was set at 5 percent, and hasn't changed since," Skirbunt said. "Commissaries are an excellent deal for customers due to the high level of savings the stores provide because we sell at cost plus the surcharge," Skirbunt said.
