Is There Anything I Can do to Have a Legal Right to See My Kids?

My wife decided to take the kids and go to California so they could visit their grandparents. Since she has been there, she has not allowed me to talk to our kids. She now states that they are staying in California for good. Prior to her leaving, she verbally told me that they would return. I am in the Army and I am currently stationed in Georgia. Is there anything I can do to have a legal right to see my kids?
