I love all things military, whether it’s video games, paintball or military history. I’ve always had some camo in my life. It’s important to know this world wouldn’t exist without the help of those soldiers who fought to keep the freedoms we have today. Even as I sit here I know there are troops around the world fighting the good fight for my freedom. It’s important to take a moment to think about what it must be like for the soldier. So often we die in games with no consequences. Sure we might wait 30 seconds to respawn, but somewhere out there there’s a soldier risking his life in a battle or trying to save others. It takes a huge amount of courage to run into gunfire, regardless of the outcome. People are fighting to make our country a better place. Many games are reenacting those famous battles, where brave men and women gave their lives. While it’s fun to play soldier for the day, remember it’s often based on the stories of real soldiers.
While I’m not a Veteran myself, I have a lot of respect for those who served. My Grandfather served in the army, many friends and their family members have also served. You may have a friend or family member in the military, so take some time to thank a veteran today.
