OSD ‘Supply Drop’ Provides Deployed 2-5 Cav with Games and More

KILLEEN, TEXAS & AUSTIN, TEXAS (September XX, 2018) /For immediate release/ —  The 2-5 CAV is part of the 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, based out of Fort Hood. Currently, the 1st BCT is on rotation in eastern Europe. These soldiers are a tough bunch, living by the motto “1st team never quits.”  They work hard and give everything for the mission, but they were in desperate need of something to fill their downtime.

Spc Gideon B. said, “The nearest town is about an hour away, but it doesn’t offer much entertainment. We mainly stay here in our training area and in our off time. We either go to the gym or play cards at the MWR. We can only play cards so much. It would be exciting to get some swag to share with my brothers to change things up a little! Thank you!”

These troops are now enjoying games, coffee and other supplies from generous donors including Starbucks, Microsoft, 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 early Fall as members of OSD’s Texas Region, leading and participating in social, professional and service events within the Central Texas Chapter.
