This is honestly one of the best nonprofit organizations I've ever come across. They focus 100% on helping our veterans. They provide assistance, community, brotherhood, fun and a positive environment. They give our veterans a safe and fun place to meet with others that have similar likes and interests and have this entire gaming community so that everyone feels right at home, from the first minute that they arrive. Their programs have helped so many veterans all across the country and I can't wait to see what other great things they do, in the years to come!

They are highly involved in everything that their name is apart of. Constantly going out of their way to ensure things are being taken care of. It's a real family friendly feeling and a place veterans can call a home or a great place to get help or help out. Amazing org.

Found these guys through a post on PC Part Picker and I dropped into their discord. Nice folks who help out veterans and just hang out with you so you're not at a loss for finding someone to play games with and talk about things that not many other folks will understand.

I'm a New Zealander /ex-military and found Stack-Up through their work with Bungie and Destiny. It's an awesome community and Ive started a New Zealand based Stack! It really helps to enrich the lives of deployed people and helped service persons who have come back. It's a great cause that can reach out to young people and help them in a unique way.

Been working with these guys as a volunteer for a while after seeing firsthand the support they give to our veterans. As a veteran myself it has been a blessing in disguise of the support they give and showing others how to pay it forward

I have supported this organization since its founding, but I became very actively involved when they started offering non-clinical crisis intervention and suicide prevention. The need for mental health in the veteran community is at an all time high and having a new and different way to reach out is a wonderful thing.

I met these guys as they worked with Critical Role to bring to light their work with Veterans and service members. They send veterans to industry events and send care packages to veterans and service members.

These folks have accepted me and keep tabs on me.

As I started my transition out of the military I became involved with Stack Up, doing so has allowed me to link up with other veterans! Because of Stack-Up I have met some awesome people and get to spend time with them gaming and decompressing from the day to day stress.

Stack-Up puts their money where their mouth is. These folks are helping our vets through gaming, overcoming PTSD issues, re-integrating and reconnecting with civilians and having a great time doing it. Take a look at some of their videos and if you don't put a lot of stock in online reviews, then let these vets tell you themselves. They send gaming care packages to folks currently deployed to help relieve the stresses associated with combat operations, organize and support groups of civilians and veterans who come together for camaraderie and fun and bring wounded and deserving vets to awesome gaming conventions for once in a lifetime experiences.
