Bring on Veterans Day!
Military gaming charity Operation Supply Drop pulled off a heck of a milestone for their first 4th of July donation drive, code named PIXEL FIREWORKS: twelve care packages filled with $30,000 of video games and gear raised over June and July. The video game stuffed packages are going to five units deployed across Afghanistan as well as an individual at Walter Reed national military hospital recovering from injuries he received in Afghanistan!
