OSD ‘Supply Drop’ Provides Soldiers in the 20th Engineer Battalion a Way to Rest and Recharge

KILLEEN, TEXAS & AUSTIN, TEXAS (September 16, 2018) /For immediate release/ —  The 20th Engineer Battalion is currently deployed from Fort Hood to Afghanistan. Their mission requires long hours and they have little to do to relax and recharge after a long day. These soldiers were in need of something to fill their time and keep their minds off of missing home.

SPC Reuel P. said, “This Supply Drop could really help us especially if we get a gaming system like XBox or PS4. A lot of guys are just going to the gym and I think they need something else to keep their minds busy and rest after a long mission.”  

OSD came through with a Supply Drop. 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.

SPC Reuel P responded, “My guys totally loved the games. It’s definitely a great way to pass the downtime and tune out. You have already made our deployment better. Thanks again!”  

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 this winter as members of OSD’s Texas Region, leading and participating in social, professional and service events within the Central Texas Chapter.
