We have another great Stack-Up Supply Crate to talk about! This time coming at us from Armando in the Army. He reached out to us looking to turn to gaming for a bit of R&R when him and his team have some down time. Read the full request below…

Our group was asked to recently deploy to Afghanistan. Like many units, we have been moved around throughout the Area of Operations.

We are currently in a small camp with no PX (Post Exchange) and limited amenities. We are tasked to provide 24/7, 365 a yr Medical evacuation for all US and coalition forces. Much like firefighters, there are many times that we patiently wait for the big call.

I would like to expand our activities by providing my group a console system and games at no cost to them. We are currently paying over $150/month for internet and would like for my Soldiers to save money this deployment and not spend it. 

Within the first 30 days, our unit took a casualty. Thankfully, he is on his way to recovering and has made it back to the US. Playing video games will give my guys a way to decompress.

We knew we could help Armando and make sure there was enough gaming goodness to go around for the whole squad. We quickly went to work packing up a Supply Crate loaded with the latest games and a few extra geek goodies just to be sure.

We then sent it downrange and waited for the response. When Armando and his team received everything they sent us back a great picture with their new gear!

Stack Up,

We received our Stack up package! It arrived at the best time right before Christmas!! The group is ecstatic and we have started using the PS4.

Attached is the picture of my team grateful of the gifts we received from Stack Up!

Thanks to your Armando for reaching out and everything you and your group do to help your fellow service members. We hope the games provide some much-needed relaxation during your downtime.

If you’d like to make a donation that gets sent over to our troops as a Supply Crate, Stack-Up takes lightly used PS4, and Xbox One games and gear as well as cash donations.

"Madden and FIFA have become our go-to with tournaments running nightly and a white board dedicated to win-loss records. Rivalries are forming and guys are finding time to practice in between work and working out to sharpen their mad skills...morale is through the roof! Thank you again, the Supply Crate you sent has truly improved our living conditions and gives us a much needed form of relaxation. You may not realize it, but this will keep our sanity intact."

Your Supply Crate not only made my Christmas, but made my year; this has really turned things around for me. Stack-Up is truly a thoughtful organization, designed to bring happiness to us vets who have an extremely hard time finding happiness anywhere in their lives.

"I heard from a brother that you guys helped him out; to see that kindness still around is amazing. As a vet its hard sometimes, and having groups like yours out helping for nothing in return its great. Please keep up the great work and don't ever stop."

...while we have all had various types of awesome care packages delivered to us over the years with toiletries, tobacco, and tasty treats, none of us have ever experienced anything quite like a Stack-Up Supply Crate.

Working on the flightline, 12 hour days are normal and there are so many stresses that come with my job. Being able to come home and forget all of it for even an hour does wonders for me personally. I have built so many friendships in Stack-Up and I can't wait to make more. It's a family.
