STAMFORD, Conn. In light of the potential Department of Homeland Security shut down that would halt pay to active duty Coast Guard and Coast Guard retirees, Defense Mobile has pre-preemptively waived next month’s mobile service bill for every Member that has served or is currently serving in the United States Coast Guard.
In the event that this Department of Homeland Security funding lapse occurs, Defense Mobile will continue to waive monthly mobile service fees until funding is restored. With all that these men and women have done and are doing for our country, Defense Mobile hopes this will give these heroes one less thing to worry about.
Defense Mobile will also extend this courtesy to any Coast Guard service member or retiree that signs up for Defense Mobile service during this potential funding lapse. Defense Mobile urges all those eligible to visit http://tinyurl.com.coastguard15 to order a free Defense Mobile SIM card today.
“The men and women of the United States Coast Guard work tirelessly to protect our country every day. This is one small way to show our appreciation,” stated Dave Trimble, Head of Member Experience at Defense Mobile. “We at Defense Mobile hope that offering free mobile service to Coast Guard service members and retirees will help relieve some of the financial burden that this potential funding lapse may cause.”
