Daily Herald report

Palatine American Legion Post 690 and AT&T are teaming up this week to allow sailors visiting the post for a Thanksgiving feast to call their loved ones back home.

Sailors from Great Lakes Naval Station Great Lakes in North Chicago attending the post's Thanksgiving meal on Thursday will be provided smartphones by AT&T so they will have a chance to connect with family and friends on the holiday.

"For nearly 100 years, AT&T has supported our active military and veterans and this donation is keeping with that tradition," said Dave Fine, the company's vice president and general manager for Illinois. "Thanksgiving is a time to connect with loved ones and we are proud to provide that service to all of our customers, and especially these men and women who are serving our country."
