A few months ago, I wound up on Elliott in the Morning by dumb luck, and heads ups from buddies in the area who listen to the wildly popular radio show.
Calling in resulted in something of an interview, as a result of prior callers on their Warhammer segment mentioning the NOVA Open. By the end of the call, we'd had a fun time of it, and we wound up catching the attention of a lot of people in the DC area who listen to his show (including some of my family members, who excitedly texted in).
One of these listeners was Alan Siegel, a freelance journalist who has written for a variety of media sources from the Washington Post to Slate, and who lives in the DC area. He heard mention during my on-air time of the high # of service members who participate in our hobby, and contacted us through the website to inquire more about the hobby, the NOVA, and especially the service member angle.
We invited Alan over for a game day, introduced him to a bunch of the people we knew who were comfortable talking about their hobby in relation to their military service, and he took it from there.
Alan's article released yesterday on Slate, and I thought I would re-post/share it here.
Only thing about it that's not spot on? I'm not an attorney! Haha.
