11/11/11 might be more famous to
gamers this year as the release date for Skyrim, but it’s also Veteran’s Day,
the day of the year we give tribute to those that risk their lives to protect
us. And soldiers underneath the training and heroism are just like us, at least
when it comes to the desire to play games. The life of a soldier can be a
boring one and the charity Operation Supply Drop makes it their cause to bring
games to our boys. And this November as part of Veteran’s Day, you can help
them help our friends overseas.
Above: An example of the packages ODB sends out
The charity and FrontTowardsGamer.com
are working together to collect money all through November to send more game-filled
care packages than ever before to troops in places like Iraq and Afghanistan.
Normally the program sends out a package once a month, but this Veteran’s Day drive
aims to send one a week for a month if they can get enough donations. You can
learn more about the program here
or just donate directly at Operation Supply Drop’s website. At ease.
