Dual Wield Studio x Stack Up
Today we're proud to announce a partnership product with Stack Up, a military charity focused on bringing together both veterans and civilian supporters through a shared love of video gaming through their primary programs: The Stacks, Supply Crates, Air Assaults, and the Stack Up Overwatch Program [StOP]. Learn more about the great work this organization is doing by visiting their website at StackUp.org.
Dual Wield Studio and Stack Up have partnered to create a very special pin that commemorates the life and service of Josh Fetter, Rowan Rowden's younger brother who passed away at the end of 2017.
All 100% of the net profits for the Panzer Pin will go directly to Stack Up.
About Josh, as written by his family:
Josh Fetter grew up on video games, Airsoft, and science. He joined the US Army straight out of high school. He went to Forward Observer school (Fister) in Ft. Sill, OK and was stationed in Ft. Bliss, El Paso, TX.
His battalion was sent over to Camp Lemonnier, Djibouti, Africa. While on base he worked as security in IED detection and led missions into Syria and Iraq. He also helped train soldiers as a Forward Observer. While overseas, his vehicle was hit by an IED and, in that battle, he suffered what doctors later determined was a traumatic brain injury.
Josh was honorably discharged as a result and began work as an electric lineman. He rescued a German Shepherd that he named Panzer, bought himself a Boss Mustang, and was part of his local Mustang club. While home, he ended up missing the military and joined the North Carolina National Guard. He was a huge fan of video games but especially Halo, Minecraft, and the Tom Clancy titles.
In December of 2017, from a combination of his untreated TBI and PTSD, he took his own life.
Josh's dogs were a huge part of his life, and our hope is with sales of this pin we can bring further awareness to a great cause while honoring the life he led.
