OSD Surprises Wounded Soldiers With $10K Video Game Giveaway For the Holidays

December 23, 2013 - GamePolitics Staff

Military-focused gaming charity Operation Supply Drop sent along an inspiring note about a recent happening at the Fort Eustis Wounded Warrior Transition Unit. The group stopped by the military medical facility to throw the injured soldiers staying there a pizza party and video game raffle just in time for the holidays. The operation, code named BATTLE WAGON, included the donation of brand new Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles on mobile 19" GAEMS Vanguard cases so they can be wheeled into soldier's rooms who are unable to leave their beds.

"Just because these troopers are back from Afghanistan doesn't mean everyone gets to go home and be with family for the holidays," said Captain Stephen "Shanghai Six" Machuga, Operation Supply Drop founder. "We wanted to make sure we're taking care of the ones stuck here."

"A big thank you goes out to our allies over at Able Gamers Charity for chipping in to help make this event happen: as they work with bringing gaming to individuals with disabilities or injuries, it made sense getting them involved in our little surprise operation! " he added.
