OSD ‘Supply Drop’ Provides Airmen in the 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing With Some Much Needed R&R

LAKENHEATH, ENGLAND & AUSTIN, TEXAS (November 12, 2018) /For immediate release/ — The 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing is deployed to Jordan from RAF Lakenheath. Tasked with assisting with Syrian and other isolated threats in the area, their ops temp is high. They were in need of a way to relax and cope with the stress of the deployment.

SSgt Kevin S. said, “We just started our deployment and would love any support. We are an F-15 Maintenance unit. There are 51 specialists in my flight and roughly 200 total for my squadron. We have a high tempo job but love our off time playing some games and hanging out when we can.”

OSD was happy to provide these Airmen with some stress release.

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.

SSgt Sonny H. replied, “The games are great for relieving some stress. You guys are awesome!”

A1C Yates K. continued, “Thanks for giving us some well deserved R&R. The games and system were great. Best care packages ever.
