Minutes That Matter: International Minutes

Since 2004, our Minutes That Matter program has had a simple mission: to help troops call home at no charge. More than 400 million minutes of free talk time have been provided by sending more than 5 million calling cards to servicemen overseas.

Request free talk time for your troops.
