Air Assaults

Stack-Up hand-picks deserving veterans and pays for them to attend life-changing video game and geek culture events, whether it be a Comic-Con, an Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), a Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) or even a game developer studio tour. With the help of our local Stacks providing support, we make sure those veterans have a weekend that they will never forget!

Who is eligible for an “Air Assault” event as a guest of Stack-Up?

There are a limited number of events that we are able to attend each year, so not everyone who applies will be accepted. We’re looking for deserving active duty, or retired veterans with an honorable discharge. Deserving is obviously a subjective term, so we will be reaching out to credible applicants to discuss their service. Combat or service injured veterans must be able to reproduce medical discharge paperwork.

If accepted, what does the time line look like?

After your application is reviewed and a Stack-Up team member talks with you, we will find an acceptable event for you or the person you nominate!

Nominate an Air Assault

We are looking for deserving veterans to bring with us to amazing gaming and geek culture events such as Penny Arcade Expo, ComicCon, E3, TwitchCon, etc.! The better the story, the more likely you’ll be chosen. You do not need to be a combat disabled veteran to apply. If you have served your country honorably and have a decent story as to why you should be selected, you may still be eligible! If selected, we will be verifying all your service information, please make sure to have your DD-214 and Department of Veterans Affairs medical paperwork, so go ahead and stow those tall tales!
