Thumbs up 2007 Delaware Chapter Meet Dover Air Force Base

Delaware Chapter is having its August 11th Meet--N--Greet at the Dover Air Force Base Car, Truck, & Bike Show.

I ask for your support for the men and women serving our country overseas. As you probably are aware, our government does not give these men and women the means to keep in touch with their family or friends at home via telephone. They must pay out of their own pockets for this privilege.

The Delaware Chapter is collecting "Phone Cards" to present to the Dover Air Force Base Combat Services to be sent to the men and women serving our country.

Military Exchange Prepaid Calling Cards offer the best bang for your buck. This link explains the Military Exchange Prepaid Calling Cards available, https://thor.aafes.com/scs/default.aspx , The Department of Defense Military Exchanges have been authorized to sell the following prepaid calling cards to individuals and organizations who wish to purchase these cards for our troops serving overseas in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. AT & T offers the best rates for prepaid calling cards.

Some FAQ facts:
<TABLE class=main style="WIDTH: 1027px; HEIGHT: 856px" width=1027 align=center><TBODY><TR><TD class=main align=left>Q: Why should I purchase the Military Exchange prepaid cards?</TD></TR><TR><TD class=main align=left>For service members to receive the best calling rates from OEF/OIF, senders should take advantage of the savings and purchase the Military Exchange 550 and 300 Minute Prepaid Card as it offers the best value when calling home.</TD></TR><TR><TD></TD></TR><TR><TD class=main align=left>Q: What is the difference if I send a loved one an AT&T prepaid card purchased from another retailer?</TD></TR><TR><TD class=main align=left>Although AT&T phone cards are available at several domestic retailers, they do not offer the best value when placing international calls to the U.S as compared to the AT&T Military Exchange 550 and 300 Minute Global Prepaid Phone Card.

Prepaid phone cards are generally designed and marketed for use only within the 48 contiguous states by other retailers as the cards are generally sold for domestic use.


Domestic retailers do not target nor negotiate low international calling rates to the U.S.

Therefore, they set international prices higher, as their target market is domestic.

Service members may be sent prepaid calling cards from home or provided pro bono prepaid cards from private organizations; however, the Military Exchange does not control the negotiated rates for these products and rates may be significantly higher as well as incur connection or other hidden fees.

Additionally, other payment options are available when placing calls such as telephone calling cards, commercial credit cards, and collect calls.

Using these products when placing calls from Iraq will be significantly higher and rates vary for each product.

Telephone calling cards may include unforeseen charges, connection and service fees.

Using the 550 and 300 Minute Global Military Exchange Prepaid Card offers the troops the best value when calling from OEF/OIF back to the U.S as they do not carry any hidden charges, connection fees and the minutes do not expire.

The Delaware Chapter is asking for your monetary support by buying one of the prepaid calling cards so we can provide them to the DAFB Combat Services. We plan on also supporting their car, truck and bike show to be held at the air base on August 11, 2007. At this time we will present the prepaid calling cards that we collect.

This is a link to our chapter G2G, 2007 AUGUST GTG DOVER AIR FORCE BASE SHOW .

Lew, dawgs150, is hosting the meet for FTE and the Delaware Chapter. If you would like to attend, sign up in the Delaware Chapter.

If you would like to donate a prepaid calling card, PM or Email me for the ship to address. I will see that the cards get to the intended recipients.
