Soldiers of the 2-211 General Support Aviation Battalion (GSAB) are deployed from West Jordan, Utah to Iraq. They are providing general aviation support for Operation Inherent Resolve.  

The stress of deployment, missing home, long hours – all of this can leave soldiers with low morale. To help boost morale and make the deployment go a bit faster a number of the 2-211 GSAB get together weekly to relax and play games.

MAJ Chaplain Brent C. explained, “We have 20 soldiers that gather 3 times a week to play board games to relax from mission requirements.”

They reached out to OSD hoping to add some new games or entertainment items to their gathering. We were happy to provide them with a Supply Drop and give the weekly game night a boost!

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.

OSD’s “Supply Drop” program has impacted hundreds of thousands of active military personnel in scores of locations around the globe. These Soldiers will return home in the late Spring as members of OSD’s Northwest Region, leading and participating in social, professional and service events within Utah.
