You've Been There.
You've seen the sun set on the desert and heard the sounds of mortars and rocket shells in the night. You know the taste of sand on an MRE. You know the sound of an A-10 as it takes off for a strafing run. You know the taste of salt in your mouth as your Zodiac pushes for the beach.
You've Done That.
You didn't get just a lousy T-shirt. You got wounds, scars, memories and a brotherhood. For you, it wasn't a game. It was a job.  It was a job you volunteered for- many times, more than once.
Welcome to [BTDT]'Been There Done That'.
We are a group of veterans, active, inactive and retired, who game, socialize and continue the brotherhood. We don't care about your skill level, your gender, your age or if you were combat deployed. We don't care if you were a Soldier, Sailor, Airman or Marine.
We only ask one question. Did you serve?
We'd love for you to apply. Why? Because you've Been There and Done That.
So have we.
***ONLY REAL LIFE MILITARY VETERANS (ANY COUNTRY) ACCEPTED***

[BTDT] CIBCHAPLAINHello to all,

The Legion Gaming Network staff and myself have begun our first project to get this Veteran owned and operated gaming company on the path to success. Of course we have to test our market initially. So in order to avoid handing out equity, or relying on angel investors, we have decided to create a Kickstarter project. We are aiming to create an online social network designed for gamers and people that love everything geek named “The Coliseum”. The great thing about “The Coliseum” is that we will not only create a site for the gamers worldwide, but we will create a side designed for military gamers only (current and former service members and their dependents). This can be a great way to extend the military gamer community, and decrease the amount of segregation amongst groups. I’m reaching out to all of you to gain some support, because this can be a game changer for us all, and will open up the doorway to the gaming industry to a veteran owned gaming company. We have backer reward levels, and any kind of backing even if just a dollar will help. Also sharing this will help increase our audience. To follow our progress you can like and share our Project focused FB page at [link] and to see the details about or make a contribution to the Kickstarter you may visit [link]

Thank you for your time BTDT family, and God Bless.

[BTDT] CIBCHAPLAIN   We've done a ton of research. We will be gaining a lot of support from the civilian market, and please believe I have other contingencies in place to make this happen. As for dependents, we figured it was only fair. There are a lot of dependents that support and help sustain the military community. There's no fairness in excluding them completely.
[BTDT] CIBCHAPLAIN   I'm reaching out to a lot of people. I figured coming to this community would also help, because truthfully this is for you guys. I'm literally doing this for BTDT.
[BTDT] Zuytdorp Benefactor  with BTDT we show our 'credentials' - so to speak - what form of proof will you be asking of civilians and do you think it will be easilly managable? i only joined BTDT to play as a member of a team in BF4 some 8 months ago - give-or-take - so your idea is appealing. BTDT started small so i don't see why this idea can't pick up and run but unfortunatelly i wouldn't be willing to hand out cash on the project, sorry; there's far too many charities out there and i can barely manage the odd $5 donation to BTDT on the occassions where i do donate. there are plenty on money-raising schemes going about so i'm sure you will work something out, and i would like to say one more thing and hope to hell this doesn't alienate me as i'm sure others are thinking the same - if not then i'm the only turd here - but when i started a small business back in 2006 helping others to self-publish, which i no longer do due to costs etc, i put $26,000 of my own money into starting it up because i believed in it and never asked help from anyone, which begs the question, what's in it for me if i donate? so instead of raffles you could other % in shares/bonds.
[BTDT] Zuytdorp Benefactorjust saw this and couldn't help but put it on here. try not to laugh too loud.

[BTDT] iDivideByZero BenefactorI've bought a few games off of here already, and they have consistently been the cheapest place to get games. They also have Xbox Live memberships, but I am not sure if it is the cheapest for that because I'm just a PC gamer these days. Anyways, enjoy :)

[BTDT] InfantryOIFvet   I've actually seen this awhile ago. Granted he's not a vet like us, but his eyes tell a tale alone.

If you haven't heard/seen it check out the other movie "Korengal". Kinda like a sequel/more footage from "Restrepo" Both of which are amazing documentaries. Always shed tears watching it.

Re-sharing on my FB.
[BTDT] IYAOYAS05 Benefactor  Just got done watching Korengal...amazing. If you loved Restrepo...you'll love Korengal.
[BTDT] Zuytdorp Benefactor  I like what this guy has done, believe me, but brotherhood is only a small part of it. I was in UNAMIR II but hardly knew the guys as I was ‘requested’ for the duty as Section Commander just a few months prior, and experienced exact same torments when in PNG under the AAPTP training 300 civilians to be infantry soldiers inside of six months for deployment to Bougainville; both times I didn’t want to come home to Aust, both times I felt strange inside. It was the fact that I was actually accomplishing something, even if minor; or I was doing the job I’d been training for so long, I was seeing the fruits of my labour, others people in both cases were getting something from my time spent in country. I was doing something I enjoyed and wanted to do. On my return to home country I had none of this, it was like water under the bridge, but ‘brotherhood’ only adds to it, sometimes in a big way and sometimes only a little. PTSD stems, I believe, from your inabilities. My inabilities to help save the lives of 10k massacred, or my inability to take my freshly trained and highly skilled troops into combat, or even to follow them into their new battalion to help them along in their career - inability comes from many sources, including the death of your friends which you may feel partly responsible for as you all fall beneath the same banner whereby the death of someone from another unit or tour provides you with no great, ill-feeling.
There is too much emphasis here on ‘brotherhood’ even if correct to a degree, but the guy in the video has served his country as any other who served the dotted line, but in a different way, which is why you can see that he too has problems stemming from PTSD, whether diagnosed or not.
This is not a debate, just thought my two cents may be worth something, so I’ll refrain from answering the backlash.
