To my surprise, I had a package addresses to me from Wombat himself. Opened it up to find the following for our troops:

Saints Row :360:
Virtua Tennis 3 (New & Sealed) :360:
Splinter Cell: Double Agent:360:


Thank you for the support and I will try to get the new owners to do the same. I am sure they will like the games that you were kind enough to share. I attached a pic of what we do with expired ordinance around here...make them decorations! :)

Well, big update for today.

I received 2 packages today:

Thorbahn3 sent us the following brand new games:

-Puffy Amiyumi Kaznapped :gba:
-Spy Hunter / Super Sprint :gba:
-Duel Masters Kaijudo Showdown :gba:
-Dragonball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3 :ps2:
-A special DVD containing good ol' fashion pr0n:twisted:

Briansraregames was also kind enough to send his raffle prize from the Child's Play drive. I received a new copy of Rainbow 6: Vegas :360:

I brought the following games to one of the Seabee Battallions here on base:
-Splinter Cell: Double Agent :360:
-Rainbow 6: Vegas :360:
-Saint's Row :360:
-Virtua Tennis 3 :360:

They have over 250 Seabees here and recently received a complete entertainment package from MWR. That is the Morale, Welfare, and Recreation protion of the Armed Forces that tries to keep troops busy with entertainment and morale boosting activities. They were a little dry on games so I contact their Command's MWR representative and made a visit to drop off the games. They will be added to their local library and I was told that this stuff will stay in Iraq for the next Unit and so on. They are also placing labels on the cases that will say where the games were donated from.

Here is a picture of a fellow Seabee and E-6 with myself during the meeting. Come to find out she is already a member of the site and an avid gamer so I hope to see her jump in and say thanks:


And here is a picture of the entertainment center they received complete with an HDTV, stereo/home theatre, and whatever else is there. Not bad at all:


Side topic:
Rob, thanks for sending out Rainbow 6 on briansraregames' behalf. I see you are from Shrewsbury. I am from Worcester (Grafton Hill/Plantation St) and my grandmother actually lives in Shrewsbury so I know exactly where you live. I used to work at the Navy Reserve Center on the corner of Lincoln St and Plantation St. before moving out to California. Small World!

Well CAG was down and so were we so I couldnt post if I wanted to. We had 10% of our normal (already slow) bandwidth because a cable somewhere was cut. It seems fixed so that is good news. No email for 4 days can drive ya crazy!
Just want to update the thread. I received a package from Izzard Lizard that contained the following 24 games:

PS2 :ps2::
Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
NCAA Marsh Madness 2005
Power Drome
NCAA COllege Football 2k3
NHL FaceOff 2003

High Heat 2002

Xbox :xbox::
Brute Force
Crimson Skies
ESPN Football 2k4

Perfect Dark

I also received a donation from Gamestop in Grapevine, TX. They were kind enough to send out a new and sealed copy of Rock Band Special Edition Bundle for the Xbox 360! I just wanted to say thank you to Izzard for sending out all the games mentioned above and a seperate thank you for both Izzard and Gamestop down there in Texas for sending out the Rock Band bundle. I am sure that it will get a lot of game play out here.

I also received a 2nd package from HotShotx. He sent out the following games:

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 4 :gc:
Prince of Persia - The Sands of Time :gc:
The Lord of the Rings - The Return of the King :gc:
The Simpsons - Hit & Run :gc:
Tony Hawk's Underground :gc:
Madden 2002 :gc:

HotShotX, Thank you for another donation. If no one read up the previous posts, HotShotx was the 1st CAG to ship out any games to us and he was not only kind enough to ship then, but also to send out some more games. Much appreciated bro.

Here is a picture I took of some of the guys out here receving some games the other night for their Unit:


I am also going to send a package up to another area addressed to lunchbox so check your PMs lunch.

Lastly, I want to say "GO PATS" being from Massachusetts and all because them Patriots will run a muck of the Giants tonight. I have a bet with my LT that if they win he has to pressure wash our spaces and it the Giants win (he is from NYC) then I have to iron his uniform once a week for the next 3 weeks. We figured that would make up for the spread.:roll:
