Operation Supply Drop Expands Mission

A mentoring program has been started to highlight, foster and support veteran-owned business, primarily in the video game and entertainment space

Leading video game-themed military charity Operation Supply Drop has announced the expansion of its mission to become the most culturally relevant and generational charity for active duty military and veterans by creating a network of veteran-owned businesses that offer publicity, support, mentoring, partner introductions and strategic advice to startups and companies founded by current or former members of the military. HeroCrate is the first such recipient.

Operation Supply Drop was founded in 2010 by U.S. Army Ranger Captain Stephen “Shanghai Six” Machuga, with a mission to “provide fun where there is none” by sending video game-filled care packages to troops deployed to combat zones and veterans recovering from their injuries.

To date, Operation Supply Drop has raised over $1.5 million USD in donations, games and related gear from across the gaming community and has helped more than 4,000 active duty military members and veterans worldwide.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
