The 108th Force Support Squadron’s MWR Gets an Update Thanks to OSD ‘Supply Drop’

BORDENTOWN, NEW JERSEY & AUSTIN, TEXAS (November 1, 2018) /For immediate release/ —   The 108th Force Support Squadron is deployed to Africa from Joint Base Mcguire-Dix-Lakehurst in New Jersey. Stationed at one of the main hubs in North West Africa, their MWR left something to be desired. This particular MWR serves as a morale boost to multiple branches of the US Military as well as other Allied Nations. Additionally, this location hosts hundreds of additional personnel or are in-transit to their deployed location or deploying home.

Senior Airman Kathleen W. explained, “We currently do not have a large selection of video games and a lot of our controllers are either broken or in bad condition. This is my first deployment and I would like to leave the MWR in a lot better state than it was when I arrived, especially because this is an austere location. I would love to provide a lot more options, as far as video games go and systems for my fellow troops, organizations, and civilians. Our location will also only continue to grow over the years, due to the large number of missions we support, which would mean a larger flux of personnel over the years to come.”

OSD was honored to help out.

These troops are now enjoying games, coffee, and other supplies from generous donors including Starbucks, Rip It Energy, Disgruntled Decks, FanDuel, GAEMS, and other key OSD partners.

Senior Airmen Kathleen W. responded, “Thank you again for all the help. I will continue to spread the word about your amazing programs.”

OSD’s “Supply Drop” program has impacted hundreds of thousands of active military personnel in scores of locations around the globe. These Airmen will return home in the Fall as members of OSD’s Northeast Region, leading and participating in social, professional and service events within New Jersey.
