Stack-Up.Org’s Air Assault is ready to land at PaX South on the last weekend of January! Throughout the year, we will be supporting deserving veterans and active duty soldiers by paying for them to attend special video game and geek culture events. At less than three months since Stack-Up began, we are proud to announce and introduce our first recipient of our Air Assault project. Andy “BionicWarVet” Toppin will be joining us at the Penny Arcade Expo happening January 29th- 31st, and we couldn’t be more excited to spend time getting to know him better and giving him access to this life-changing event.
He medically retired from the Army in 2012 and moved to Houston where he now resides. If you ask him why he supports Stack-Up, you will hear how video games helped him through his own personal issues and continue to help him even today. He desires to make sure every Veteran has the same opportunity and knew he needed to be a part of Stack-Up when he watched Nate and Stephen share that same passion on their first Twitch broadcast. Andy is very much looking forward to being a part of the Air Assault at PaX. “I have never been to a gaming event of any kind, so I am beyond excited and grateful to get this chance.” We at Stack-Up are incredibly thankful for Andy’s sacrifice and service and are honored to provide this opportunity to a true Hero.
