Air Assaults – PAX East 2017 Event Recap!

This past March we had the opportunity to take two amazing veterans to PAX East 2017 in Boston Massachusetts through our Air Assault program. Joseph Nieves and Louis Perezboth Army Veterans and passionate gamers, were excited about the prospect of three fun-filled days at one of the biggest events in the gaming industry.

Our Media Team had the chance to catch up with the Air Assaults throughout the Convention weekend and record some of their exploits, which you can see for yourself in the video below.

In addition to helping our Air Assaults enjoy various games on the convention floor, we were able to support Loius’s efforts in the Hearthstone Tournament as you saw in the video above. He sure was excited at his one game victory even though he lost the match, but who could blame him? The excitement of playing against the number four ranked player in the world is just something you do not forget.

We also wanted to line up something special for Joseph. Joe, who did some media work in the military, had the opportunity to participate in an interview with Quake guru Tim Willits about the new game Quake Champions and of course get some hands-on time with the game, check it out.

Thanks, Joe, you did an amazing job in front of the camera and managed to snag some great intel about the game. You can take a look at another great piece from Joe about gaming with PTSD right here at this link!

We want to thank all of our amazing supporters and Red Shirts who work so hard behind the scenes to help make our events like PAX East not only possible but successful. It is because of our amazing supporters that we can help some awesome veterans create lasting memories in the gaming community.

"Madden and FIFA have become our go-to with tournaments running nightly and a white board dedicated to win-loss records. Rivalries are forming and guys are finding time to practice in between work and working out to sharpen their mad skills...morale is through the roof! Thank you again, the Supply Crate you sent has truly improved our living conditions and gives us a much needed form of relaxation. You may not realize it, but this will keep our sanity intact."

Your Supply Crate not only made my Christmas, but made my year; this has really turned things around for me. Stack-Up is truly a thoughtful organization, designed to bring happiness to us vets who have an extremely hard time finding happiness anywhere in their lives.

"I heard from a brother that you guys helped him out; to see that kindness still around is amazing. As a vet its hard sometimes, and having groups like yours out helping for nothing in return its great. Please keep up the great work and don't ever stop."

...while we have all had various types of awesome care packages delivered to us over the years with toiletries, tobacco, and tasty treats, none of us have ever experienced anything quite like a Stack-Up Supply Crate.

Working on the flightline, 12 hour days are normal and there are so many stresses that come with my job. Being able to come home and forget all of it for even an hour does wonders for me personally. I have built so many friendships in Stack-Up and I can't wait to make more. It's a family.
