Free online games for Veterans
Operation Supply Drop’s Games to Grunts program supports community engagement to Veterans, military, and their families through video games. All of the games are available through digital download codes. 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. Eligibility is determined through ID.me, a third-party identify verification service that is also available to use on VA.gov. To sign up, visit https://gamestogrunts.weareosd.org/. The sharing of any non-DoD information does not constitute an endorsement of products and services on part of the DoD.
