Operation Supply Drop’s METAL ONE Care Package On Its Way to Afghanistan!

Operation Supply Drop’s Black Friday care package, METAL ONE, is on its way to Afghanistan!  Instead of waiting in ridiculous lines outside of Best Buy this morning, I merely waited until 8 AM, strolled in the front door, grabbed a few last minute games that I needed to finish up this package, and then zipped on over to the Post Office!  I literally walked into Best Buy, went to the game section, grabbed a handful of their Black Friday deal games, went up the register, and was checked out in 15 minutes.  O Black Friday, where is thy sting?

I don’t know about you, but I’m having a blasty blast here helping out all these units overseas.  Sure, I’m not getting as much Skyrim time as I’d like, but we’ve got a whole stack of requests coming in for Christmas months from folks who really sound like they could use a pick-me-up.

If you’d like to support our soldiers deployed to Afghanistan, you can help us out by using the Chipin link on the right side of the page to make a cash donation, or you can simply send your used games to the following address to make the next care package:
