OSD ‘Supply Drop’ Stocks a Limited MWR for 91st Engineer Battalion out of Fort Hood

KILLEEN, TEXAS & AUSTIN, TEXAS (October 19, 2018) The 91st Engineer Battalion is currently deployed to Poland from Fort Hood. Stationed at a Polish base in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve, there is little to do for entertainment and living conditions are cramped.

SGT Thomas B. wrote, “In our barracks there is no internet. We are sleeping on paper thin mattresses with anywhere from 4 to 8 people in a room. There is absolutely nothing to do on base. We have one room set aside that’s going to be our MWR room. It just has a single tv in it now.”

They will also be deployed over the holidays and would love a way to take their mind off of missing their families back home.

SGT Thomas B. continued, “We will also be here through Christmas. Personally, it will be the first time that I will be deployed through Christmas with a family back home. I know I’m not the only one in this situation, so any little thing I can do to bring joy to everyone will be worth it. We are not bad off in any means as soon people have brought their own TVs and gaming consoles. Of course everyone has their laptops, but it would be nice if we had a little something more to do all together.”

OSD was happy to deliver a little Christmas cheer in advance.

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.

Sgt Thomas B. responded, “I did receive the packages. Thank you so much. It was nice to see the look of happiness on people’s faces when they realized someone would do such an amazing thing as you guys have done.”

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 Fort Hood/Killeen Chapter.
