Soldiers of the 52nd Air Defense Artillery Deployed from Fort Bliss Get Morale Boost from OSD Supply Drop

EL PASO, TEXAS & AUSTIN, TEXAS (April 23, 2018) /For immediate release/ —   The 5th Battalion 52nd Air Defense Artillery (5-52 ADA) is deployed from Fort Bliss to Bahrain. These soldiers work nearly around the clock to ensure that all equipment is in prime condition.

PFC Evan B. explained, “We work nonstop, almost 96 hours a week to make sure our equipment is ready to defend civilian and military assets in Bahrain.” Working these long hours definitely take a toll. PFC Evan B. was looking for a way to boost morale and provide his fellow soldiers with something fun to do in their limited downtime.

An OSD Supply Drop was the answer.

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.

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 fall as members of OSD’s Texas Region, leading and participating in social, professional and service events within El Paso.
