At United Through Reading, we encourage military families to FaceTime, Skype, Hangout on Google, and video chat as often as possible when that is an option. But the truth is, it’s hard to sync schedules and service members don’t always have the luxury of a strong internet connection. When schedules do align, young children don’t always have the attention span needed to focus on video chat which can be demotivating for that far away service member.

Unlike video chat, United Through Reading is always:

    when internet connections aren’t

    for kids to watch again and again

    to children any time they need and miss their service member, day or night

With a UTR video service members can be there for bedtime every night, on a birthday or first day of school, or anytime their children need them. When calling home isn’t an option, United Through Reading is.
