Military support nonprofit Soldiers’ Angels is proud to announce its partnership with StripesGAMER.com to provide deployed service members with the fun and challenge of a Call of Duty 4 online gaming tournament, "Battle for the Wii’s."

Online and offline video games are one of the most common and appreciated entertainment options for troops deployed around the world. For 10 days in June, Soldiers’ Angels will pump up the fun by providing tournament prizes for StripesGAMER’s Call of Duty 4 tournament, creating the largest prize pool StripesGAMER has ever offered. Gamers will compete online for a grand prize of 2 Wii Systems, Wii Fit, and Guitar Hero World Tour in two concurrently-running competitions for the deployed, as well as a stateside competition. In addition, each competitor in the deployed category will receive a special care package from Soldiers’ Angels.

Soldiers’ Angels Soldier Liaison Toby Nunn is thrilled to be a part of this entertainment opportunity for hardworking service members. "It’s directly touching our deployed troops, another way to reach out and support our heroes. Soldiers’ Angels is very happy to be developing this connection with StarsGAMER." Nunn points out that it also gives Soldiers’ Angels the opportunity to reach out to other companies and organizations, draws attention to the impressive variety of assistance Soldiers’ Angels offers, and highlights the continuing need for Americans to step up and put their support for the troops into action.

Registration for the competitions began on Memorial Day and continues through June 9, 2009. Game play runs from June 10 through June 20, 2009. To learn more, see StripesGAMER.com.
