General Information

Sports Clips and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) have partnered together since 2007 to help America's heroes connect with their loved ones through free phone calls provided by VFW Operation Uplink. As our troops are coming home and entering the civilian workforce, Sports Clips is expanding our support for service members, veterans and their families. It's our way of saying "Thank you for your service."
