Anyone can now call the Army in Europe's official Defense Switched Network phone numbers from the U.S. via a standard Stateside commercial telephone number. Dialing 301-981-1059 gives callers in the U.S., who do not have a DSN line available, immediate commercial access to an operator in Germany, who will then connect them to the appropriate DSN number in Europe. Callers must pay commercial calling costs to the Maryland 301 area code, but there are no overseas calling charges, and the number is accessible from any phone. This number is for official use only -- not for "morale and welfare calls" or for personal use. For more information, call in Europe +49 (0)6221-57-7270 or call in the United States 1-301-981-1059 and ask for DSN 370-7270.
