Operation Supply Drop: Crimson Omen

Steven Machuga Operation Supply Drop Crimson OmenFor nearly two years, retired Captain Stephen “Shanghai Six” Machuga has been putting together care packages for U.S. troops deployed in Afghanistan.  He spent a total of two calendar years deployed overseas with the 82nd Airborne Division and 2nd Infantry Division to 13 straight months in Iraq.  In that time, he learned what an impact good care packages can have on morale for the troops overseas.  As a gamer himself, Stephen realized that video games are a popular item to see in a care package and an excellent way for us to give back to the troops.  Therefore, Operation Supply Drop, his charity, focuses on video game care packages from various game development studios as well as donations from the public.

The care packages are such a success that Steve reached out to us with the idea of a Gears-themed care package.  The care package is called “Crimson Omen” and Steve is looking to raise additional funds to help make it extra special.

You can get more information about Operation Crimson Omen here as well as have the opportunity to donate to support the wishlist items for the soldiers!  Below are some photos of a past care package that Epic Games donated to as well.
