What are Thank You Deployments?
Our Thank-You Deployment program began in 2014 as a way to express our appreciation for veterans identified by the community as going above and beyond in their service. These experiences span from VIP attendance to popular gaming conferences like E3 Expo and PAX to a day supercar racing, golfing with NFL legends, ora Texas white-tail deer hunting weekend. Our goal is to provide the most meaningful experience possible inspired by the requests of of our nominated veteran.
Why are Thank You Deployments important?
We have no shortage of veterans to honor with these experiences and have seen firsthand the benefits to a veteran returning home. What makes Thank-You Deployments unique is that we select veterans nominated by the community for their service to others. Furthermore, while traveling for a “Deployment,”, our veteran spends some time with the local community Team to develop deeper long-term bonds within the OSD family even after returning from their “Deployment” experience..
