Request Free Phone Time

I would like to request VFW Operation Uplink™ phone time for myself or a loved one! 

Please note the following:

  • With the advancement of technology in combat zones, we are no longer sending bulk phone cards overseas. In lieu of bulk phone cards, Operation Uplink now provides bi-monthly Free Call Days through over 600 SPAWAR cafés in Afghanistan, Kuwait and other Middle East locations. If you or your loved one is stationed in Afghanistan, Kuwait or other Middle East locations with access to the SPAWAR cafes or military DSN lines, complete the form below and Operation Uplink will provide Free Call Day information and possibly a virtual PIN. For assistance in finding your local cafe, click here for SPAWAR's customer service contact information. For our current Free Call Day schedule, click here
  • Virtual PINS are available for deployed active duty military personnel who are stationed outside of Afghanistan/Kuwait, who do not have access to a SPAWAR cafe, deployed Chaplains for emergencies or for hospitalized veterans.
  • Because of the demand for phone time, service members and veterans are limited to one PIN per 60-day period.
  • Duplicate requests will not be fulfilled and requests will not automatically regenerate. New requests must be submitted.
  • Virtual PINS will only be sent via email to a military email address.
  • PINS will not be sent to a personal email address.
  • For bulk requests of virtual PINS for a deployed unit, VA facility or veterans nursing home please email uplink@vfw.org directly.
