“The first Event for Vermont’s newest Airsoft field MACV is limited to 120 players. Featuring MILSIM style scenario play with added immersion with use of military vehicles.
A 14-year-old boy named Michael Bergstrom from North Dakota suffers from Progressive Mitochondrial Disease. This is a disease that eventually will lead to a premature death. Michael has the disease but that shouldn’t stop him from becoming a special operator for at least one day.”
“Mitochondrial Disease is a progressive disorder in which the cells of the body do not make enough energy to sustain bodily functions. Mitochondria are found in every cell of the body except red blood cells and are responsible for creating more than 90% of the energy the body needs to sustain life and promote growth. When the mitochondria do not work properly, less and less energy is generated and cell injury and death are the end result.”
Michael always wanted to serve in the US Armed Forces. He wanted to serve honorably just like his real heroes do day in and day out. The Make-A-Wish Foundation came to us as Michael’s make a wish was to experience a GMSOG event! When we told him GMSOG was closing he said GMSOG or nothing! So the GMSOG staff have set up a new non-profit field called MACV.
Please come out and help us give Michael the best event you can imagine. We have some special surprises for Michael, the army guard will be joining us with some toys, along with some former SF members. We ask that team’s please bring some extra patches or small size tee shirts from your teams for him as it would mean the world to him.”
