3-25th Aviation Regiment Deployed from Wheeler Army Airfield Receives OSD Supply Drop

WAHIAWA, HAWAII & AUSTIN, TEXAS (October 20, 2018) /For immediate release/ —   Soldiers of the 3-25th Aviation Regiment are deployed from Wheeler Army Airfield in Hawaii to Afghanistan. They are a group of hardworking soldiers stationed in a remote area of the country. There is little to do at their FOB.

Hoping for something to do to kill time and also lift the morale of their fellow soldiers, they reached out to OSD for a Supply Drop.

Chief Warrant Officer 3 Dustin S. explained, “We are a small group on a small FOB. There is no PX or MWR or USO. Just the boys working hard every day.”

We were happy to get some entertainment and coffee sent their way and help make the deployment suck a little less.

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