“As the Co-Founder, I am honored that Merging Vets And Players was selected to be the recipients for the funds raised for this exciting event. I will be skydiving on November 2nd for one of my fallen brothers.”  – Nate Boyer,

“As an Army Veteran myself and a board member of Merging Vets And Players, I know how important raising the awareness of the suicide epidemic among the veteran population. We are honored to participate and receive funds from this exciting event as we know it’ll go towards providing critical peer support for veterans who feel alone and miss comradery.” – Randy Couture, UFC Hall Of Famer

“I jumped for Sgt. Dunlap who was killed by an IED in 2007. It was a way for me to remember him, but  most importantly to face a fear I always had with heights. I know have made it my mission to jump every year for him, and the many others that have fallen.”

-Juan Pena, A proud veteran of the US Marine Corps, having served over 8 years and earning numerous awards during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Juan now works at Compass Real Estate and conducts yearly seminars for military veterans equipping them with transition skills.
