5th Annual Veterans Day Care Package Drive

Donate to the Troops

Nov. 11-12, 2019

Join this effort to show our support, offer gratitude and encourage continued strength to the men and women defending our freedom abroad.

The Office of Military and Veterans Affairs, in partnership with the Staff Advisory Council, is supporting our service members currently deployed overseas with a care package drive. This year, we are excited to partner with our neighbors at Offutt Air Force Base by adopting their 55th Aircraft Maintenance Squadron. This unit consists of technicians dedicated to providing mission-capable intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance and national command and control aircraft and deployment teams to 12 squadrons in six countries.
