Interesting idea.

There's ways to get free calling though if Koodo doesn't offer it.
One I make use of is an App called "TextPlus" (available for Android & iPhone) - it allows you to text & call each other for free around the world. Just keep in mind it uses Data (calls are about 1MB/minute) so it's best to use it when on Wi-Fi.

Military already offers ways of calling their families when they are overseas. I don't see why Koodo should offer something extra like this. Just seems like it would be a lot of extra hoops.

Do they arrange for it to be free for their families as well?

Interesting idea, but I don't really see it coming to Koodo. But who knows?

As many Military ppl my wife knows say, "As military ppl we make plenty of money to pay for these things that company's make cheaper or free & don't think we should get any special deals because we already make more money than most ppl so why should we get deals on top of that." I was surprised to hear this from military ppl but I have to agree with them and I admire those who serve their country because they love their country & don't expect anything from it but a sense of pride & accomplishment, those are the true heros.
