Donating a cell phone helps soldiers talk to loved ones

5/07/09 (Thu)

They say that you can tell who your loved ones are by realizing the first people that you want to talk to when something wonderful – or mortifying – happens to you in life. When you have a great day, or when you have a sad day, it is easy to turn to a friend or family member for support. Even across the miles, those ties can be held strong through a simple telephone call.

Having the ability to speak with loved ones makes the trials and tribulations of life, and the celebratory moments, just a bit easier to handle. So what if that ability was taken away? Having family and friends just a phone call away is a luxury that so many of us take for granted.
