I was contacted by @GISUPPORTER on Twitter and asked to get the word out about this program. Here's information from the USO website:
The USO - through Operation Phone Home® -- buys and hands out thousands of pre-paid phone cards to our men and women in uniform.
For our soldiers at the Front, there’s no magic like the music of your child's voice on a Holiday morning... no warmth like the familiar sound of "Happy Birthday" sung by your parents or siblings... and no relief as complete as the chance to chat with a friend when you're really down.
Your $15 donation provides a GI in Iraq with 45 minutes of prepaid calls to the US. A $20 donation buys 60 prepaid minutes. A $100 donation: 300 minutes. Please give as generously as you can, today! Tomorrow could be too late.
