Operation Supply Drop sent us a massive care package that included an XBox, coffee, and snacks. My Marines truly appreciated the gifts and appreciated the support they received from Operation Supply Drop.

Being able to get supported by OSD made it possible for our WWP group to enjoy a little friendly competition. It was fun. Competitive and good way to let out stress without getting combative.

This organization has had a huge impact on my husband and his friends. It allowed him to find that comradery that he missed when he left the service. This organization has allowed him to find a support system to help him through his recovery. Thanks for all you do.

I am a veteran that was wounded in combat in Iraq. Adjusting to civilian life had been extremely difficult and challenging. Gaming allowed me to have a respite from my daily battles with PTSD. It takes strength to fight the hopelessness and doomed feelings that were occurring constantly. Operation Supply Drop donated gaming system to our peer group so that we could get together for game nights. The comradery and support that originated from that donation will never be measured but this organization saved lives I know that for a fact. Thanks for all you do.

Being a disabled veteran, I was drawn to OSD by the opportunity to support the military community in a fun and unique way. As I've volunteered with the organization, I've watched OSD spread it's footprint and impact tremendously. Always willing to help in any fashion possible, I would recommend the organization to any service member or veteran in need of support. Even if OSD can't help you directly, they will try their hardest to find someone who can.

Not only does OSD provide amazing military and veteran support through their Supply Drop program, their Teams program also helps veterans find a new purpose after they've served. By giving Team members an opportunity to directly support military and veteran organizations in their area, often through hands on volunteering, OSD allows those involved to feel truly connected to their cause and often see the immediate result of their efforts. Whether you're the one receiving a Supply Drop, or a volunteer helping handing it off, you're rewarded with a sense of joy that can be truly life changing. It's one thing to donate to an organization, then see photos of the result a month later. It's a completely different experience to see a soldier cry because the computer OSD just gave him is going to allow him to watch the birth of his child.

Operation Supply Drop is a great organization, they have stepped up where other Veteran Non Profits have dropped when it comes to helping the veteran community. Not only do they do it through multiple different programs but they also do it with an open heart and mind. I love working with these guys and their teams and I hope I can only help them out more in the long run.

This is a very honest, transparent organization that is truly dedicated to the mission. Leadership is dependable, team leaders are enthusiastic, and those we have supported are always grateful. The emphasis on the partnership between civilians and veterans is so important and a key aspect to bridging the gap between the two. So far it has been a rewarding experience.

OSD donated hundreds of hygiene kits to veterans at the American GI Forum's Residential Center for Homeless Veterans. The team was so friendly and gracious, and they took the time to learn about the center and all of the services provided to veteran residents. OSD's presence made a huge impact on the veterans at the center, and we are so grateful for their support!

Operation Supply Drop has been a blessing to the veterans in Hays and Comal counties. They have graciously donated to my organization, Hill Country Veteran Services. They have supplied us with homeless kits, gaming system for our safe room, and door prizes for our veteran events. Scott Morrison is an extraordinary individual with a heart the size of Texas. The veterans in this area are better off with Operation Supply Drop.

Operation Supply Drop is a vital part of my life. They serve Tens of Thousands of Active Duty Military, Veterans and Family Members each year and I am glad to be a part of this support. The 37 Teams from all over the world feed Homeless Vets and Civilians, Comfort our Active Duty and Veterans in Hospitals and their families going through Fisher Houses. They give back to the community through service such as Street clean ups, building playgrounds, working in Food Pantries and soup kitchens, and just last month Operation Supply Drop distributed 500 Hygiene kits to our Veteran homeless population in Texas. Best Organization I have ever Supported.

Operation Supply Drop has given me the opportunity to support Veterans in my local community so many different ways. I appreciate the freedom to come up with as many different ideas as possible and then getting support to conduct the events. Giving back to my brothers and sisters is why I came to this organization as it is my catalyst for paying it forward.

I met one of the spokesmen at PAX South in San Antonio a few years back. Recently, upon checking in to a new duty station, I identified a need for their services amongst the junior Marines at my installation overseas. I contacted them through the established channels and immediately received contact with their representatives. I will personally continue to support their efforts via references, donations & volunteer hours.

I am an officer in Ruin Gaming with a 1000 plus membership. We were started over 10 years ago by former soldiers and active duty soldiers. We wanted to find and support a nonprofit organization for the soldier, we have found that with Operation Supply Drop, not only do they support the soldiers in far away places, they also are active with the military hospitals in providing services to our wounded soldiers. We are at current doing a fund raiser for Vetoctober. Check out this organization and help out.
