Arrow Rememberance/Veterans Day 2011


Today, as many of you are aware, is Remembrance Day, or for those of you in America, Veterans Day where we commemorate the sacrifices made by those, in conflicts past and present, to preserve the freedom which we take for granted every day. So although Project Reality is just a game, let us not forget the men and women who have fought in the past, and those on the front lines today.

This year, Remembrance/Veterans Day falls at 11 am on the 11th day of the 11th month of 2011 (11-11-11-11). To mark this once in a lifetime Remembrance/Veterans Day, we at Project Reality decided to go that extra mile by creating the Camp Bastion Memorial which will stand ingame, in Camp Bastion on our upcoming map, Sangin.


The real Camp Bastion Memorial is dedicated to those who have fallen in the line of duty in Helmand Province, Afghanistan and is used as a focal point for the Vigil services before those soldiers are repatriated back to the UK as well as of course the annual Remembrance Day services in Camp Bastion.

The PR Camp Bastion Memorial model and textures where created by [R-DEV]Rhino and the memorial site done by [R-DEV]Dr Rank.

We also feel this is a rather fitting day to reveal how much we raised for Help for Heroes (registered charity number: 1120920) at the Project Reality Convention 2011 (PR CON 2011) earlier this year where many like-minded Project Reality players all got together to play some good old PR, as well as some other games with all profits from the event going to charity!

Thanks to all of you who took part, donated towards the event and the event's sponsors Alpha-Networks, Barclay's Bank, Templant Hire & GLL. Together we raised for Help for Heroes a total of:


(Help for Heroes event number: 20010731-6531-1870)

This entirety of the money raised has gone towards helping support members of the Armed Forces who have been wounded in the service of their country.

Thanks again for all your support!


- The Project Reality Team

If I see anybody doing anything to this memorial other than saluting it I will be tempted to TK them.. Won't do it, as it's sort of counter productive in my mind, but I will be tempted... In my mind these people deserve all the respect they can get, whether one agrees with them being there or not.

I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.

All brits should salute this before they play the map, would be awesome.

RIP all those that have served and given the ultimate sacrifice so we may live on in peace at home.

That is very cool, great work.

I have a quote for everyone, it sums up the idea of veteran's day/remembrance day very well.

Quote:
A Veteran - whether active duty, retired, or Reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to their country, for an amount "up to, and including my life."
