VFW salutes the Armed Forces with an Operation Uplink Free Call Day! Troops and hospitalized veterans in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait can call the U.S. for free for a full 24 hours on Sunday January 22, 2012.

The Free Call Day will begin at 12:01AM on January 22, and end... at 11:59PM January 22 (EST).

Free Call Days are offered at more than 800 MWR internet cafes using SPAWAR located at various military installations in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait.

To place a call:
Use regular dialing procedures using your SPAWAR prepaid PIN number. If you do not have a PIN, you can obtain one from the café manager. Upon dialing, you will hear a sponsor announcement informing you that your call is free of charge.

Take advantage of this Free Call Day and call your loved ones in the Unites States!

Feedback is welcomed and encouraged!

I know this is great for the troopers that get to use it.  I am sorry though that the Uplink Phone Cards were dropped from the program.  Remember that not all deployed troopers are back at the base on "Free Call Day". There are many that are out in the field and therefore they cant take advantage of the Free Call Days and now we cant send them the Uplink Cards  to use when they near a phone line.  Plus the Uplink Cards if not used in the field could be used when calling from Europe on their way home.  Just saying.
