The Lancers from Fort Campbell Get Much Needed Morale Boost from OSD Supply Drop

The Lancers B/5-101 Aviation Regiment is deployed from Fort Campbell, Kentucky to Afghanistan. The Lancer Company is separated from their Battalion and they were feeling forgotten. Their mission regularly requires them to travel to remote locations. And even when they are back on base, an Airfield separates them from typical amenities like the USO and MWR.

CW2 Randall F. explained, “The Lancer company is separated from our battalion and often forgotten about down in the south. We are constantly flying and staying at unknown places with only a 3-day pack to live out of. When we are back at base, we are located on the opposite side of the airfield which is separated from the USO and Air Force MWR facilities.”

The Lancers have remained positive, coming together during difficult circumstances but they needed a small morale boost.

CW2 Randall F. continued, “Going through this has brought the team together though. We will put whatever is sent to good use and most definitely build morale with the items sent.”  

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 Southeast Region, leading and participating in social, professional and service events within Fort Campbell, Kentucky.
