AT&T will give away free domestic calling cards to the first 400 U.S. military active service men and women or U.S. military veterans with a paid admission to the game who stop by their concourse table.
“AT&T Illinois employees are grateful for the sacrifices that military personnel make on behalf of the nation,” said Paul La Schiazza, President, AT&T Illinois. “We are proud to donate these domestic calling cards to Veterans and active military service men and women as a small way to thank them for all they have done and all they continue to do for all of us in this great country.”
