When Marines are deployed or stationed overseas, it's always the first thing we moms worry about: how are we going to communicate with them? I am also often asked if phone cards can be donated to ship overseas to Marines. Here are some links to help answer those questions.
The SemperComm Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charity founded to boost the morale of U.S. military personnel stationed at small, overseas remote bases by providing them with free communications and entertainment equipment, software and services.

The Department of Defense announced today that any American can now help troops in contingency operations call home. The Defense Department has authorized the Armed Services Exchanges to sell prepaid calling cards to any individual or organization that wishes to purchase cards for troops who are deployed.
