A couple months ago a member of the National Guard 1/209 RTI out of Camp Ashland asked us if we could spare a couple dead hard drives for a training exercise they were planning.
Schrock had a couple hard drives that had been wiped clean and were slated for destruction, so we donated them instead. I honestly thought they would blow them up or something, but what they ended up using them for was a whole lot more fun than that!
A few days ago we received this video and a beautiful plaque thanking Schrock for the donation.
In the video you will see the 3rd Platoon on an exercise to retrieve the data storage devices from a downed UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) in a hostile environment.
You can see the soldiers move into a protective formation around the objective before recovering the data storage device.
It was a real treat to get a surprise like this, and we are all happy that we were able to help our soldiers in a small way.
