Tatango, the Seattle-based SMS service firm, has partnered with Miami-based eMail Our Military (eMOM) to connect deployed military service members with their loved ones back home through text messaging.
Tatango has created an interface exclusively for military personnel, which easily allows any service member to instantly update all their loved ones on events of the day, advancements and most importantly, their safety.
“We’re extremely excited about this partnership, as it allows us to do our part in supporting the troops who have been deployed overseas,” says Derek Johnson, CEO of Tatango. “By working closely with Trish and her team at eMail Our Military, we were able to modify our current website to accommodate the needs of military service members without access to a mobile phone.”
Prior to the Tatango and eMOM partnership, there were limited ways for military personnel to simply and effectively connect with friends and family in the United States while overseas. Now, with one message directly from a computer, all loved ones on their contact group will be updated at the same time via a text message. Not only can service members send a message to everyone’s mobile phone, they will also receive immediate gratification, as replies to the text message are routed directly to their account for viewing.
“Our mission at eMail Our Military has always been to improve the lives of our troops,” says Trish Forant, president of eMOM. “Our partnership with Tatango has created another innovative way for us to further our organization’s mission, as well as providing peace of mind for our service members and their families.”

About eMail Our Military
eMail Our Military is a charitable organization supporting U.S. troops through morale boosting email correspondence, letters and care packages. Troop supporters can take part in a number of projects ranging from sending eMail to a service member on a one-on-one basis to year round support projects. eMail Our Military was created in 2001 as a response to the DoD’s cancellation of the “Any Service Member” and “Operation Dear Abby” mail programs. As a safe alternative, eMOM picked up where these programs left off. You can learn more about eMail Our Military, on our website at: http://www.emailourmilitary.com/.
