Marines Deployed from Camp Lejeune Get Morale Boost Via OSD ‘Supply Drop’

JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA & AUSTIN, TEXAS (September 21, 2018) /For immediate release/ —  Marines deployed from Camp Lejeune to Afghanistan got a much-needed morale boost from an OSD Supply Drop’. Part of the Georgian Liaison Team Rotation 7 (GLT ROTO 7), they work at the largest Entry Control Point (ECP) at Bagram Airfield. The food and goods that come through their ECP feed all the smaller FOBs in Afghanistan. Such a large job means they run 24/7 operations. Unfortunately, they don’t have much to do in their downtime they have.

 

Sergeant Jordan B. said, “Working at the ECP we run 24/7 operations so all the Marines that are attached to the ECP live at the ECP. With that being said, we live away from the main side of the base and don’t have WiFi where we live. We are a tight group of Marines who work hard every day but do not have a lot of entertainment during our downtime. Any kind of board games or gaming system would help improve morale and help us pass the time because we do not have WIFI.”

An OSD ‘Supply Drop’ was the perfect way to boost morale.

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 Marines will return home in the early Fall as members of OSD’s Southeast Region, leading and participating in social, professional and service events within North Carolina.
