It's not always easy for military families here in the United States to get in touch with their loved ones serving overseas.
That's why Verizon Wireless has offered to help this Father's Day weekend. They're calling the promotion, "15 Minutes with Family."
Anyone can place an international call anywhere in the world for free through Sunday. Store manager Scott Layman says it's a simple way to give back and brighten someone's day.
"I see unexpected happiness," he says. "I know most of the calls are unplanned on the other end, so it's nice just hearing folks get connected again."
He says they've had quite a few families take advantage of the opportunity. They expect even more calls to be placed on Father's Day.
