Operation Supply Drop weekend prepares to Send Games to Troops Overseas

Parties organized by gamers across America this weekend will raise funds for and collect video games and consoles to be sent to U.S. troops deployed to Afghanistan as well as being rehabilitated at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.  The events, part of Operation Supply Drop’s national Veteran’s Day “8-Bit Salute to Veterans,” will be held in Chicago, Dallas, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and New York City on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012. Gamers everywhere are invited to participate.

Attendees and others can contribute via monetary donations or drop boxes.  The events will feature live music, bars, game tournaments and prizes.  Professional athletes will support the Dallas and Los Angeles events.  The Dallas party will also have the Charisma +2 calendar models.  Pamela Horton, an avid gamer and Playboy Playmate Miss October 2012, will be present at the Los Angeles event.

Captain Stephen “Shanghai Six” Machuga, a former Army Airborne Ranger, founded Operation Supply Drop in 2010, after serving for eight years with the US Army, including 13 months in Iraq.  An avid video game player himself, Machuga realized that many soldiers are gamers and don’t have access while deployed to their favorite form of entertainment, one of the few types of leisure activity permitted in high threat areas.

“When soldiers aren’t outside the wire on patrol, their favorite activity is playing video games,” explains Machuga. “Our packages are an immeasurable morale booster; troops are accustomed to getting care packages from strangers full of baby wipes and socks.  Our care packages are designed to blow their socks off.”

Since the charity’s establishment, Operation Supply Drop has raised more than $60,000 in games and gear packages, each with an average value of $2,000 to units deployed in Iraq or Afghanistan. With the help of a variety of allied gaming organizations, Operation Supply Drop’s “8-Bit Salute to Veterans” will be one of the country’s largest efforts undertaken in support of Veteran’s Day. Join one of these groups on Saturday, Nov. 10, 2012.
