455th Air Expeditionary Wing Deployed to Afghanistan Receives OSD Supply Drop

WHEATLAND, CALIFORNIA & AUSTIN, TEXAS (July 12, 2018) /For immediate release/ —   The 455th Air Expeditionary Wing is deployed from Beale Air Force Base to Afghanistan. They are responsible for providing air power and airlift for all forces throughout the region. It is a tough job with long hours in less than ideal conditions. Inevitably, morale takes a hit. 

CMSgt Michael S. reached out to OSD hoping to give him Airmen a small reminder of home and boost their spirits. He explained, “Morale packages are a huge lift for the men and women serving in tough locations away from friends and family.  An OSD Supply Drop would be deeply appreciated and well used!”

Happy to get a Supply Drop in the hands of these deserving men and women.

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 Airmen will return home in the fall as members of OSD’s Southwest Region, leading and participating in social, professional and service events within California.
