Operation Supply Drop is a great organizations that will provide entertainment and fun games to deployed military members. My unit just got a supply drop from them and we cannot be any happier. We are so thankful and excited to receive some entertainment while being away from home. Operation Supply Drop sent us shirts, board games, gaming system, games and controllers. They definitely hooked us up and we will be using all of the items provided to help pass the down time while we are deployed. This is a great organization and we are lucky to have a supply drop sent to us. We would like to thank everyone at Operation Supply Drop Inc. and we just want them to know that we appreciate everything that they do and we couldn't do what we are doing here with out their support.

I am the Team Leader for the Pittsburgh Chapter of Operation Supply Drop. Since starting the team OSD has given great support for me to help the local veterans and the community. Currently planning an event to feed the homeless in the city.

OSD has managed to push the envelope with what a small org can do! When you can effect people around the world deployed and domestic it feels good. As an active duty army soldier, i love this charity!

I've recently become a member of FTG (Front Towards Gamer) they work very closely with OSD (Operation Supply Drop). I'm friends with a few different gamers who are military personnel as well as a few who I gamed with that were active duty! OSD is a HUUUUUGE organization that does things for the good! Without the help and support of OSD a lot of soldiers of both active duty and veterans! Video games and gaming accessories are a bit part of keeping soldiers "grounded" but they also help with PTSD! The OSD crew has streams teams as well as other teams that help gather items to send care packages to our troops as well as our vets, they also with networking opportunities! I fully support this charity and think that without this organization a lot of things would be different! It helps soldiers "reconnect" with society. This has already been proven to be a vital program and I would love to see it get more coverage and to see it grow to be a HUGE charity!

I have been working with OSD in the London Ont Canada area for just over a year now, we have been able to do some great work within the community. For volunteering at a garden to having a drop at the local base.

As a gaming community full of dads we've done a charity stream for OSD. Inside our gaming community are dads who served or still served. Some have been beneficiaries of the supply drops and they have had a more pleasant experience as possible being deployed playing video games while being stationed far from home. Definitely a great organization and thats why I stand behind them!

I love this group! I am a life long closet nerd/geek, I grew up when you were hunted if they smelled it on you. LOL! I am a disabled Veteran, and not much I can do with my disabilities. This group reached out to me. Not only sent me to my first Comic-con in my life, they also provided help for me to navigate it with an excellent guide/companion. Next month me and my family are going to a pool party at the Marine Base in Yuma. I am so looking forward to geeking out with the Marines! They do so much fun stuff for Service People and Veterans and their families! Check them out, OSD shines!

This group right here is the Justice league to every veteran superman. They come up with events and opportunities for Veterans throughout the phoenix area to enjoy; socializing, exploring, relaxing, encountering.....life. I'm so glad I'm joined. They are the proof that people appreciate what we do for them.

Operation Supply Drop took the time to accommodate my extensive injuries while fulfilling something I'd always wanted to see. They took me out to E3 in Los Angeles and had quite a group of top notch experiences lined up through vendors, developers, even the Microsoft/Xbox booth itself. It was an experience I will never forget, and will always be grateful for.

I was in Afghanistan and they were shutting down everything. Last minute, they decided to keep the base open for a couple more years. theChive pointed me in the direction of OSD. I put in a small request for our morale center, and OSD by far exceeded any expectations. We were only expecting a few games. We received nearly 100 games, 3 X-Box 360s, 2 Wiis, shirts, games. Just far more than expected. More people did start showing up to the morale center and loved the additions that OSD supplied. I boast about OSD to people and help get the name out!

Ray and the rest of the guys at Operation Supply Drop were great! They dropped some consoles and games to our Battalion that both gave the chance for the soldiers in our Unit to take their mind off everyday stress and to come together and bond as well as build life lasting friendships. Thanks Operation Supply Drop and keep up the good work!!

As you can see in the photo the effect of the Supply Drop to the Valley Veterans Service Center (VVSC) in Hamilton, Montana was immediate. The VVSC serves over 5,200 veterans and their families in rural Montana where services and opportunities for fun are often out of reach.

Thank you Operation Supply Drop for "bringing fun where there is none."

I would like take a moment to extend my appreciation for the donations OSD provided to our Airmen, Soldiers, Sailors, Marines and Coalition partners while they are deployed at my location and away from their families. The donations OSD provided reminds us that we have people who support and care about us back in the United States. Gestures such as these help keep the morale high and allow our airmen to perform their jobs to the best of their abilities while they fight to protect our country. All our members truly appreciate the time and effort OSD put into packing and sending our care packages filled with games and hardware. Every little gesture from home makes a big difference while deployed and we thank them for their continued support of our troops. Non-profit’s like OSD should not go unnoticed.

I was brought into this operation supply drop family through twitch word of mouth, since then I have been treated like I was a family member my whole life. I as a veteran always look for ways to help other veterans and enlisted military. OSD has given me and my company a way to help financially but also the opportunity to physically participate in community activities with enlisted and veteran. OSD has reached a level of giving that Is rarely seen in veteran groups. My personal opinion is that OSD's community outreach efforts and deployed veterans supply drops is well worth my time and money just to see the enjoyment on the faces of a soldier that is far from home or a veteran in need of support. Thank you OSD for seeing and answering the call of us veterans and deployed military members.

Operation Supply Drop levels the playing field amongst veterans. Old, young, new, or experienced, anyone and everyone can come together to support veterans and have a good time. Veterans won't ever feel intimidated or patronized by civilians, and civilians won't ever feel intimidated or patronized by veterans. It's one giant cohesive blend of amazing people coming together to support troops and volunteer their time back to their community. I couldn't imagine a better group of people to do it with.

Operation Supply Drop is a great organization doing great things. Given the opportunity of seeing first hand what OSD does and how they make service members and veterans feel is an experience I will not be able to have any where else. I would recommend everyone to atleast check out the website to get a small taste of such a huge movement.

Since retiring Operation Supply Drop has given me a sense of purpose and that sense is helping out other Veterans. Operation Supply Drop truly cares about Veterans and this shows in all their programs. Since joining, I have participated in events to Help Homeless Vets, Vets who suffer with PTSD and fun events with Wounded Vets.

This is a great organization and does what they say they do.
