Redshirt Roundtable: New Years 2022


December was a pretty great month for Stack Up as we closed out 2022. You all raised a total of $801,366.58 when the final tally of streaming fundraisers was made at the end of the year. With that in mind, we want to say thank you. Thank you for answering the Call to Arms, whether you fundraised, volunteered for Stack Up, or made yourself a brilliant part of our community.


Now that 2022 is over, we asked our community to sum up 2021 and tell us about their New Years' plans and goals. Here are the questions we asked:

  • How would you sum up your 2021?

  • How are you planning to celebrate the New Year?

  • What is a goal you are setting for yourself for 2022?

  • What are some steps you think you'll need to take to get to your goal?

  • A big part of Stack Up is community. What are some ideas you have about how we can help each other stay motivated throughout 2022?

  • Do you have a New Years Celebration message you want to share with the Stack Up community?

How would you sum up your 2021?

2021 was an interesting year. VA increased my disability, but the issue has drastically cut down my ability to work. I have been moved to a desk job resulting in a decrease in income but still managed to buy my first home for my family.


How are you planning to celebrate the New Year?

With my wife and children drinking hot cocoa and eating tacos.


What is a goal you are setting for yourself for 2022?

Get better at 3d printing and continue to print stuff for local Vets as I can afford to and help other Vets get into the hobby as I feel it has helped me tune out the everyday stress and pain I am in. I would like to set a goal of giving at least two local Vets a printer of their own this year.


What are some steps you think you'll need to take to get to your goal?

I am taking on some price work to generate the funds to support my hobby and goals of giving back to the community.


A big part of Stack Up is community. What are some ideas you have about how we can help each other stay motivated throughout 2022?

Just being there is a big help, maybe making a local region area in the discord, so it is easier to find Vets with the same interest in your area.


Do you have a New Years Celebration message you want to share with the Stack Up community?

Brother and sisterhood are as important as family as we all do not have family per see, but if you served, you just have to remember you're part of the biggest and best family there is. I will always have my home open or lend my ear to my brothers and sisters that have served.

What is a goal you are setting for yourself for 2022?
