‘Supply Drop’ Brings Much Needed Boost to Soldiers on Their First Deployment’

VICKSBURG, MISSISSIPPI & AUSTIN, TEXAS (March 14, 2018) /For immediate release/ — The 411th Engineer Company deployed to Afghanistan from Vicksburg, Mississippi. This marked the first deployment for many of the soldiers. Long hours and missing home meant that morale was pretty low.

PFC Drew W. said “This is the first deployment for many. So it would be really nice for us to have something to remind us of home.”

An OSD ‘Supply Drop’ delivered some of the comfort and familiarity of home, giving these soldiers some much-needed fun down range.

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 Southeast Region, leading and participating in social, professional and service events within Mississippi.
