Who We Are
Veterans are our Mission. Gaming is our Passion.
Founded in 2015, Stack-Up (TAX ID: 47-5424265) brings both veterans and civilian supporters together through a shared love of video gaming. Stack-Up serves United States, NATO (UK, Canada, etc.) Australian and New Zealand veterans through three primary programs: The Stacks, Supply Crates, and Air Assaults.

When a stack prepares to breach and clear a room as detailed above, the second team member in the stack throws a noise flash diversionary device (better known as a flashbang) into the room to blind, deafen and disorient anyone waiting for the team to enter.
