The brave men and women of the U.S. Armed Forces are dedicated, upstanding and amazing individuals who put their lives on the line daily to help make the United States a safer place. However tough their tour of duty may get, it's always nice to be able to take a time out and enjoy the finer things in life like video games.
Founded back in the summer of 2007, Pro vs G.I. Joe is a unique non-profit organization dedicated to bringing soldiers together with celebrities and professional athletes to compete in video game challenges. Since their inception, they've done a whole bunch of these virtual meet-ups and soldiers have faced off against the likes of the Green Bay Packers (Halo 3), Shaq and David Robinson (NBA Live 09) and Warren Sapp (Madden 09). It's a really great organization with an innovative vision. Seems like they have the right idea of how to say "thanks" to the service men and women who do so much.
Tonight on a very special Attack of the Show!, soliders from Camp Virginia in Kuwait will take on hosts Kevin Pereira and Alison Haislip in a game of Call of Duty: World at War live on the air. Who will triumph? Will the real military minds be able to conquer the video game geeks? You'll just have to tune in and find out.
All the fun starts tonight at 7 PM ET.
