WHY WE ARE HERE
RPG is committed to helping those who have experienced combat and military service related mental and physical health issues. Veterans and active service members typically find it difficult to reintegrate into normal society after serving in the military, especially combat zones, so normalcy isn’t always an option for them.
We are dedicated to providing a safe and positive environment while allowing these talented people to showcase their gaming skills in a way that matters to them. We want to give them the opportunity to grow on their own terms while at the same time pushing them to greatness. We are not military exclusive because we encourage people to connect outside of the military to help with reintegration.
“18.5 percent of servicemembers returning from conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan meet the criteria for either depression or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Veterans were 1.5 times more likely to commit suicide than the general population before the coronavirus pandemic even started. Similarly, many vets have been unable to get life-saving medications through the mail—including treatments for mental health. To make matters worse, an overwhelming 80 percent of vets get their medications this way.”
