Using calling cards instead of standard phone service is an excellent option for military servicemembers on deployment anywhere, even overseas.
Before they were famous, many truly influential men and women started by serving their country in the US military or grew up in military families.

Stay Connected With Calling Cards

Being deployed overseas is difficult enough, without having to add the stress of skyrocketing phone bills for staying connected with your loved ones at home. Reconnect with family without draining the bank, with today's calling and video-conferencing options.


Using calling cards instead of standard phone service is an excellent option for military servicemembers on deployment anywhere, even overseas. Today's calling cards are easier than ever, and require only a toll-free phone number and a personal identification number (PIN). You may find a pre-paid calling card is even less cost than the average monthly-unlimited phone plan.

Pre-paid calling cards allow servicemembers to call home from a variety of locations, for a flat rate. When purchasing a phone card, check the terms and rates, making sure that you are able to make calls from the locations where you are assigned. A lot of pre-paid phone cards have flat rates worldwide, or from locations in various different countries.

Wise use of a pre-paid military calling card will go a long way towards lowering your long distance phone bill and raising your morale when you're far from home.


Skype is another practical option for military servicemembers who want to make frequent, long distance calls. Skype has the added bonus of a video interface, creating a rich opportunity for closeness that is often lost on the telephone.

And many Skype services are free. For example, Skype-to-Skype video and voice calls are free, as are Skype group IMs and conference calls. Other Skype services, such as calling mobile or land-lines, are offered at low rates such as $ 0.021 per minute, which can be pay-as-you-go.

Don't let expensive phone calls get in the way of what really matters: staying connected to home while you are away on deployment serving your country.
