OSD Lifts Spirits for Dozens of US Army Soldiers Deployed to the Pacific Pathway Through Late Summer

FORT WAINWRIGHT, ALASKA & FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA (March 1, 2018) /For immediate release/ — In a deployment from one weather extreme to another, soldiers of the 25th Infantry Regiment are in dire need of support in the Philippines. The US Army troops, that call Fort Wainwright home, are not due to return until the late summer.

 

Sgt Nicholas P., said, “I a squad leader of a maintenance platoon within a unmanned aviation company currently deployed to the pacific pathway.”

“While we are not flying we have nothing to do which as you know does not help morale. My soldiers deserve a pick me up and I’m hoping OSD’s support could bring up their spirits.”

 

Laeth Damon, Army Veteran and OSD Warehouse Manager, stated, “We know very well of the need for ‘stuff’ to do in downtime while deployed. We have the pleasure of dropping some amazing gear and support to ensure our soldiers keep their minds in the right place between mission. I know the coffee from Starbucks will also be valuable to these soldiers both on and off the clock.”

 

The “Supply Drop” includes generous support from Disgruntled Decks, Razer, Starbucks, Bezier Games, Steve Jackson Games, 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.
