299th Calvary Regiment Deployed to Egypt Enjoying OSD Supply Drop

HILO, HAWAII & AUSTIN, TEXAS (October 23, 2018) /For immediate release/ —  Soldiers from the 299th Calvary Regiment are deployed from Hawaii to Egypt in support of the Multinational Force & Observers (MFO).

Unfortunately, they don’t have access to an MWR or other moral building facilities and age restrictions in the area left some of the underaged soldiers with little to do. A hardworking group of soldiers, they were looking for a way to relax and make the most of their deployment.

PFC Whitney M. explained, “I believe that 1-299 CAV deserves an OSD Supply Drop because we show integrity and pride in our work and we could use something to do in downtime. There isn’t an MWR to relax at. Additionally, most of the underage soldiers have restriction due to underage areas and they should be able to enjoy their time in theater.”

Happy to help these soldiers 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.

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 Fall as members of OSD’s Northwest Region, leading and participating in social, professional and service events within Florida.
