On Friday, November 9, AT&T will show its appreciation to those who have served our country through a series of devoted videos.

From 10 am until 2 pm, the public is invited to stop by the Farragut North store location (1050 Connecticut Avenue NW) to record video messages for veterans, thanking them for their hard work and sacrifices. The messages will then be uploaded to an AT&T YouTube site) and sent to veterans, just in time for Veterans Day (Monday, November 12).

If you can’t make it downtown, you can still record and include your video in the mix by sending your video to loveavet[AT]

AT&T will also be collecting used cellphones for Cell Phones for Soldiers, a nonprofit dedicated to providing deployed and returning troops with cost-free methods to communicate while serving in the military.
