Gaming is a proven activity that can positively impact mental health and wellness and build relationships through shared experiences with family and friends.
Games to Grunts™ is an OSD Social Connectivity program providing video games to members of the military community via digital download codes. The program was started as a direct result of the trends in the gaming industry towards digital distribution and the desire to connect with our community directly.
We’ve become experts at putting games in the hands of troops and have learned a lot while distributing over 1,300,000 games since 2010. Because OSD is first and foremost about community support, we noticed that the mechanism for getting games to troops hindered our ability to loop those we serve back into the community to provide them and their families further support.

``I do believe video games help vets of all ages with stress. I’m almost 65 and when I feel stressed, I go get lost in a game, I forget about the reason I sat down to play. No it’s not the real world but I can get into to it and just relax. It works for me and has for some time.``
“This is a wonderful program that is being offered. I want to thank all of those who donate the keys. The games are generally very expensive. Thanks a million from a Veteran on a tight budget!``
“Most excellent program would really help. Perhaps in the near future, this will be offered again, with more games, and more availability!”
