In what's become an annual tradition, the Navy Exchange Service (NEXCOM) plans to hand out free phone cards to sailors and Marines who are away from home over the holidays. The AT&T cards, worth $10 each, will be given to almost 33,000 sailors and Marines on 62 ships and submarines, NEXCOM officials said in a release. The cards can be used with the Afloat Personal Telecommunications Service system, the Plain Old Telephone Service (POTS) system or ashore anywhere in the U.S. or overseas where AT&T has a presence, officials said in a release. For more details, see this Spousebuzz post.
