OTHER WAYS TO HELP OUR TROOPS CALL HOME
We can all help our troops stay in touch with their families by buying them phone cards. Just be sure to buy phone cards through the Army Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES). These are the only cards designed to work from the seventy AT&T phone centers built throughout Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom (OIF/OEF), so our soldiers have easy access.
  • These prepaid phone cards can be sent to a specific serviceman or servicewoman by name or they can be sent through the Air Force Aid Society, American Red Cross, Fisher House Foundation, Navy-Marine Corps Relief, United Service Organization (USO), or Soldier & Family Assistance Center (SFAC) to any serviceperson who needs one.
  • For Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard troops at sea, ship-to-shore cards are available through the Navy exchange Command (NEXCOM). These cards can be bought and sent at www.aafes.org, as well.
  • Anyone can buy and send phone cards by calling (800) 527-2345, or by clicking the "Help Our Troops Call Home" link at www.aafes.org or www.att.com/military
  • AT&T has joined in a charitable program to collect and recycle used cell phones, with all of the proceeds going to provide prepaid phone cards to our service people stationed overseas. Launched this Memorial Day in New York City, the program is expanding: by the Fourth of July, people in over a thousand cities nationwide will be able to participate, at all 1,800 AT&T Wireless stores.
