This response is provided based on the information you shared and should not be used as the sole source for making a decision. You should seek guidance from the chain of command, IG, JAG or other certified agencies before making any decisions. How you chose to use this information is totally up to you and is your sole responsibility.

Usually when making long distance calls or overseas calls from a military line there has to be justification for work and/or a morale call and therefore they need approval from the appropriate point of contact or commander.

Military personnel cannot randomly use military phones to conduct personal business in which the government may incur and additional charge for the call.

Hope this helps to some degree.
