NEX to Distribute Free Phone Cards Sailors and Marines Deployed During the Holidays

The Navy Exchange Service Command (NEXCOM) is giving away  free $10 phone cards to Sailors and Marines away from their homeports and those forward deployed to overseas ports during the holiday season.

“NEXCOM is happy to be able to again give free phone cards to deployed Sailors and Marines this holiday season,” said Thomas Harris, Program Manager in NEXCOM’s Telecommunications Program Office. “NEXCOM has been giving away free phone cards over the holidays for many, many years.
