Albany -- Albany area Military men and women in Iraq will soon be able to call home for free. Hundreds of phone cards are being sent to them courtesy of The Albany Board of Realtors and Albany Veterans of Foreign Wars.
The Realtors presented a check for three thousand dollars to Albany V.F.W. Post Vice Commander Billy Bushman. The money will be used to buy phone cards for the troops through the V.F.W.'s national program "Operation Uplink."
Billy Bushman, VFW Vice Commander said "It's a big relief to them.Knowing both sides are O.K. They get a big relief out of it. That helps morale."
Albany Board of Realtors President Vickie Griffin said "Phone calls over there are so expensive, coming back over here. And I know their money is limited. So we wanted to do something as the board of realtors."
The money was donated by Albany realtors. They plan to continue raising money for Operation Uplift, which will buy phone cards for Albany area service men and women.
