Operation Supply Drop surprised the Fort Eustis Wounded Warrior Transition Unit and threw the injured soldiers staying there a pizza party and face-melting video game raffle just in time for the holidays!
Code named BATTLE WAGON, the party included donating 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. We wanted to make sure we’re taking care of the ones stuck here.” said Captain Stephen “Shanghai Six” Machuga, Operation Supply Drop founder.
