Many Veterans are familiar with video games, whether they played them in their barracks or use the games as a way to cope with mental health challenges, boost confidence and social connections. Studies have shown that video games can help a Veterans’ personal growth. Operation Supply Drop’s ‘Games to Grunts’ program supports community engagement to Veterans, military and their families through video games. Most of the games they offer are on Steam, such as TEKKEN 7, Cooking Simulator and Vietnam 65’, but other platforms are also available.
Game publishers and others donate game keys to Games to Grunts, which in turn distributes the games. Because not all games are distributed with unlimited keys, it is a first come, first serve model.
