We’re extremely excited to announce the beginning of our partnership with Operation Supply Drop’s Games to Grunts Program! This means that Offworld Games like Squad and Post Scriptum will be available to any member of the military community that qualifies! (You can find OSD’s requirements here, or get started with an ID.me account here.)
OSD is a Veteran Support Ecosystem enhancing veteran’s lives through community engagement. Since 2010, OSD has impacted over 900,000 veterans, active military, and their family members through award-winning programs emphasizing Social Connectivity, Professional Development, and Community Service.

Games to Grunts is an OSD Social Connectivity program providing video games to members of the military community via digital download codes. The program was started as a direct result of the trends in the gaming industry towards digital distribution.
We’ve become experts at putting games in the hands of troops and have learned a lot while distributing over 1,000,000 games since 2010. Because OSD is first and foremost about community support, we noticed that the mechanism for getting games to troops hindered our ability to loop those we serve back into the community to provide them and their families further support. Digital Key distribution, preceding the Games to Grunts program, required sending a spreadsheet with gaming keys to a single point of contact on a post or in a unit, keeping us from cultivating a relationship at the individual level. Games to Grunts now solves this challenge by connecting OSD to the recipient ensuring they benefit from our services in a more personal and direct way while enjoyed great games from partners supporting our military.
