Fort Hood Soldiers on First Deployment Receive OSD ‘Supply Drop’

KILLEEN, TEXAS & AUSTIN, TEXAS (April 8, 2018) /For immediate release/ —   The 7th Squadron 17th Cavalry Regiment is currently deployed from Fort Hood to Iraq in support of Operation Inherent Resolve. For many in the Battalion, this is their first deployment. Being away from friends, family, and the familiarity of home is hard.

SGT Mark M. recognized that morale was a bit low. He reached out to OSD in the hopes of helping out his fellow soldiers. He said, “I feel a Supply Drop would help the morale here. It can be pretty stressful being away from family and friends.”

Often times, games and coffee are the perfect distraction for soldiers away from home.

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 Texas Region, leading and participating in social, professional and service events within Killeen.
