Gamer Grub And Treyarch Supporting Troops In Afghanistan
Gamer Grub are a proud supporter of Operation Supply Drop‘s continued efforts to aid our overseas troops and we’ve got some exciting news in the form of a new Care Package heading their way soon!
A recent request from a member of Task Force Trident brought to light the efforts of an individual attempting to help his brothers and sisters in arms escape from the harsh reality that surrounds them everyday. Juan, currently stationed at Bagram, is one of many troops that deal with the general care and upkeep of detainees and as you can imagine, it’s not a fun job. He has been looking at setting up a Call of Duty Tournament at his base’s MWR facility to give help his comrades forget the stresses of the experiences that they face 24/7 over in Afghanistan.
You can see the full contents of his request below:
“I’ve been trying to start tournaments at our MWR Modern Warfare. Now with this I’d like small prizes for the troops here with me. We all support the mission of care, custody, and control of detainees in one way or another. I’m requesting some of the new Call of Duty video games that I can donate to our MWR after the tournament and any small prizes that you may feel appropriate for the troops (perhaps head sets, controllers and Ethernet cables for PVP interaction). We have all branches of service here. I would like to return the favor by taking pictures of all of us involved in the tournament as well as the players. I expect to keep nothing for my self, but instead give the items to my brothers and sisters in arms. It’s hard to find this kind of support inside of the country, so when a Brother in-law showed me the path to you I felt like nothing I’ve felt before. Simple support that helps us forget the stresses of a job we never get off our backs, or mortar rounds landing near where we sleep. It’s an escape of reality that you can help us achieve. Thank you so much!”
In true American fashion his appeal was answered; with Gamer Grub, Treyarch and Operation Supply Drop all jumping on board. Treyarch have put forward some great prizes including signed copies of the game, limited edition Xbox 360s, iPhone skins, t-shirts and more. Nobody likes getting pulled away from an intense Call of Duty match-up so Gamer Grub have put forward 96 packets of our ultimate performance snack to aid the soldiers in their tournament domination.
The full list of items being sent in the Care Package are as follows:
