Talking with our loved ones for Mother's Day is something many of us take for granted, but not the thousands of active duty military personnel working hard for our country. So in honor of our military and Mother's Day, Cingular Wireless is offering free phone calls at its North Clarksville store to those members of our Armed Forces who may have gone without contact with family for weeks or months. The Mother's Day calls can be made to any location in the United States, giving local troops that much-needed connection with home. Those personnel who might not be able to reach their loved ones on the phone can also snap a photo and send it to any email address or another wireless phone.
Cingular has held similar events near military bases in the past and the response from the troops was overwhelming. So this Mother's Day, the nation's largest wireless company is offering free calls and photo messages to the active military in the Ft. Campbell/Clarksville/Hopkinsville area.
"This is a great opportunity for Cingular to show the members of the military who fight for our freedom every day how much we appreciate all they do," said Jim Thorpe, vice president and general manager of Cingular Wireless- Tennessee and Kentucky. "Many of these men and women have not talked to loved ones for weeks or months and we hope they are able to make that special connection with Mom or whoever is important to them this Mother's Day."
The Cingular Wireless free calling center for our troops will be held at:
2019 Ft. Campbell Blvd.
Saturday, May 13 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
Sunday, May 14 12:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.
