The Greatest Generations Foundation Receives Support From XCom Global

[SatNews] XCom Global, Inc., a provider of low cost wireless Internet access rental services for international travelers, has announced their support for the efforts of The Greatest Generations Foundation (TGGF).

TGGF is the only non-profit organization devoted to helping veterans return to their battlefields and enabling closure of their war experiences while at the same time documenting these visits to educate youth about key war events and their relevance. “Just in the first half of 2015, we’ve taken veterans to Australia and Japan and have upcoming trips planned to Italy, Turkey, England, France, Germany and Russia,” said Timothy Davis, founder and president, The Greatest Generations Foundation. “Having a reliable Internet connection while we travel is essential for communication, coordination and working on our documentation in the field. We are so grateful that XCom Global has generously agreed to provide Internet connectivity for us as we take our nation’s heroes on these important journeys.”

“The mission of TGGF is an important one,” said Joe Fennell, Chief Operating Officer (COO), XCom Global, Inc. “We are pleased to be able to do our part to support their noble efforts and to honor our nation’s veterans. Everyone needs 24/7 connectivity when they travel abroad no matter what mission they are on. Our mobile hotspot rental service is the best way to ensure a reliable, secure connection no matter your destination.”
