You saw that right, an E-SPORTS team. A team of soldiers that are literally fighting for freedom in the digital world. Yes, we mean VIDEO GAMES.
Highly skilled troops that represent the US military as part of an effort to recruit and retain soldiers, as well as educate the public as to the US Army's role in the world.
This month the Salt Lake Gaming con was going on in Utah, and Jon Smith was able to catch up with the team to talk about the guns the fire in games compared to the games they have used in the real world. Oh, and Jon shot their NCO, SFC Dodge, in the leg once. Yes. Really. Then they both lied about it because their wives were at the range that day.
(Jon's edit: Oh calm down, it was a ricochet. He was fine :) )
