    I hate companies like these. War profiteers.

    Since this was all done in a military secure and restricted area in Leipzig can't the DoD do something about this?

    I didn't rip anyone off. I took that quote from a website that had a bio of Chesty Puller. I also, gave credit to the person that said it, the greatest General this country ever produced. I am pretty sure that there was more than one person around when he said it. Not only that, if either is not a direct quote, then they are paraphrased and that is acceptible since they both mean the same thing.
    Do you have some sort of problem with me?

    I meant this company is ripping GIs off. Your Statement was right on. No disparaging remarks for your post. Sorry for the confusion. "Semper Fi". This Company should be investigated by the DoD and they should be removed from that area and not have a contract for phone calls to the US.

    I am sorry, maybe I took it wrong. I was thinking what did I do to offend this person?

    Also, I know that some will disagree with me about Chesty being the greatest General ever, but he is my one and only hero I actually went to his grave to pay my respects.

    I suggested to my son at USAFA that he should suggest Chesty as the Exmplar of his class. My son did not think it would fly.

    Good night Chesty, where ever you are!

    A lot of great leaders come from that part of the country.

    Chesty Puller "fly" at USAFA.:biggrin: They don't think that way. Maybe Hap Arnold?

    They don't have enough circles.

    I'd be curious what they paid and what were the terms for having the contract to put the phones in there. I can't imgaine that the DoD would allow a situation where calling cards are not usable, but then again, who knows... Almost sounds like a prison pay phone arrangement.

    And I wonder if all the operators they talked to were named Peggy?

    Probably through a contract that was through a contract that was through a contract that was through a contract with the Aiport and a long distance carrier. All the family names seem to be the same though? Wheels within Wheels. Hope they get them big time.
