Operation Supply Drop Hosts Veterans at Jackie Sherrill Shootout in Dallas
Operation Supply Drop conducted a Thank You Deployment for two Veterans, Stephen Jackel and Omar Milan, escorted by OSD’s Program Director for The Teams, Scott Morrison, and Chief Medical Officer, Erik Johnson. The Event was held at two venues in the Dallas Texas Area consisting of Top Golf in Allen Texas on Sunday and Stonebridge Country Club in McKinney, Texas on the following morning.
The events kicked off Sunday night at the Top Flight facility with Stephen playing a round of Top Golf with some of the OSD team. He was very happy to meet one of his childhood Idols Billy Joe Dupree form the 1978 Superbowl Champion Dallas Cowboys. They talk and laughed together and it was the Highlight of the night for Stephen. Stephen also met Coach Jackie Sherrill. Coach Sherrill won 2 College Football National Championship’s as a player under Bear Bryant and Coached CollegeFootball for 26 years.
The Event continued the following morning with a meet and greet at the Stonebridge Country Club. Stephen and Omar we greeted by the Hosting staff from the FBI Agents Association. Stephen and Omar received some awesome presents from 5.11, Titleist, and special shirts for the event from OSD.
The golfing started at 9 am with a shot gun start and Stephen played all 18 holes while Omar putted and became the Team’s closer on numerous long putts. Team Operation Supply Drop came in last place and received a prize of free golf lessons from Top Golf. The day was filled with laughs and smiles.
The Two Veterans spent the day meeting collage greats and Former Dallas Cowboys including Jackie Sherrill, Gene Stallings, Roger Staubach, Billy Joe Dupree, Cliff Harris, Rayfield Wright, Tony Dorsett, Ed “Too Tall” Jones and Tony Hill. It was a dream come true and a truly once in a lifetime experience.
