Drop off old cell phones to give soldiers overseas extra talk minutes

MILWAUKEE -- As the holiday season begins, help is on the way for members of our military who aren't able to get back home. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker brings attention to a program through AT&T that will help soldiers stay connected while serving their tours.


Everytime you drop off your old cell phone, it provides two and a half hours of talk time for a soldier overseas.

  • Milwaukee County War Memorial, 750 N. Lincoln Memorial, Milwaukee
