Supply Crate – Spike Trap 10!
When filling out our Supply Crate requests, it is easy to focus on the troops that are currently deployed. However, it is important to remember that the guys who have put their time in and served need our support just as much.
This latest request comes to us from Dan who is a retired Army Medic. He explains a bit about why gaming is so important to him in his request and you can read it in full below.
I was a Medic in the Army and deployed to Camp Leatherneck Afghanistan 2012-2013 and came home with some pretty nasty PTSD. I don’t go out much do to crowds and the unknown and my ps3 broke so I don’t get to play online with my friends to keep some type of social life up.
I try and go out once in a while but usually ends up bad so my circle is small. I’m back working for the DoD so that helps keep me around service members but would like to be back online with my old team I deployed with.
For those who feel a bit lost or a bit on the “outside” when they return from service, gaming can be a valuable tool for social interaction, along with the anti-stress benefits having some fun with friends can bring about. As anyone in the Red Shirt Raiders can attest, gaming with a great, positive community can be an amazing experience.
It is thanks to one fantastic community that we were able to put this Supply Crate together. Crashlee and the Crash Fam answered the Call to Arms and with their help, we put together an amazing crate to be sent off to Dan. When he received the Supply Crate he took the time to write us back some words of thanks and send some awesome pictures!
I just received my supply crate and I want to say I am blown away!! You are so amazing to help me get set up with my buddies both stateside and overseas in the sandbox. After coming home from my last deployment and pcs’ing right away I couldn’t play games with my brothers.
This is one way I can relax and not worry about having an anxiety attack while having fun. I greatly appreciate everything y’all do and a major thank you for taking care of our currently deployed service members. Rock on guys and again thank you for everything!!!
Thank you Dan for your service and continued dedication to the DoD! We hope the games help you to reconnect with your Battle Buddies and also helps to make new friends and find some awesome communities to game with!
