First up, Nicholas and his crew of Afghan National Army trainers for care package code name: SPACE COWBOY. This care package was named in honor of 20-year veteran voice actor Steve Blum who was so critical in helping provide donations to fill this care package up!
Hey, got the box today and everyone is super pumped! We can’t thank you enough!
Next up, David and his infantry unit down in Helmand sent us back some pictures of his care package, code named PROJECT FREELANCER after our friends from Rooster Teeth’s Red vs. Blue:
And last but certainly not least and needing a mention is our care package code named CROSSED IRONS. If you don’t remember, it was supposed to go to Robert and his crew of beleaguered Air Force Firefighters in the Kabul area. They received their care package in mid-December, so I followed up with requests for pictures and a simple thank you. Of both, we received neither despite repeated requests across the last three months, so I can presume we’re not getting either.
Of note, we are currently building our 20th video game stuffed care package, with an average value of $1575 per care package. 19 of the care packages have gone to Army or Marine units, and which unit fails to even say thank you? The zoomies, of course.
Well, because we have no follow up pictures from them, it was recommended that we put up a picture of shame in place of the happy Air Force firefighters playing with the video games we sent them, and I wholeheartedly agreed to the idea.
If you’d like to see more pictures, head over to our brand spankin’ new Operation Supply Drop Facebook page, where we’ve got pictures of every care package we’ve sent out to date, including some pictures of donations we’ve gotten along the way!
We’re currently in the middle of our donation drive for our next care package, code named BIRTHDAY CAKE going to an engineer unit in Kandahar in celebration of Front Towards Gamer’s two year anniversary. If you’re interested in helping out, use the Chipin link on the right side of either Front Towards Gamer.com or Operation Supply Drop.org to make a cash donation, or you can simply send your used games or gear to the following address to make the next care package:

We still have that stack of donated Xbox Live 1600 point cards; donate $40 and get $20 back in Microsoft points, so come get them while they last!
