This year the event is being held is once again back in San Diego, but no matter the location, it promises to bring the same Twitch flavored action over the course of three awesome days.
We here at Stack Up are excited to introduce you to two amazing Veterans who will be our Air Assaults for Twitchcon this year. Both of these Vets are big-time fans of the streaming scene and have even been known to stream themselves. They are looking forward to meeting follow streamers to network and of course to meet some of the favorite streamers and play some amazing games.

Hello, I’m Adam Collins, I was born in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania and live in PA currently. I joined the Army in 2009 as a 25U. Was station at Joint Base Lewis McChord with the 1st battalion 17th infantry regiment (Buffalos!!!!). I had two tours in Afghanistan, 2009-2010 and 2012-2013. After I ETS from active duty, I did two years in the reserves for the 17th psyop company out of Coraopolis PA. I also work full time as a Federal Correctional Officer for the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
Gaming is very important to me, I believe it has saved my life many times since I ETS’d out of active duty. With a great community in Destiny 2 and my clan mates in The Next Faction, they always keep my spirits up and made life fun, even during the darkest days. I’m excited to be a part of Stack-up and look forward to the future with them.
Favorite Video Game Franchises/Studios/Publishers:
Dead Space series and COD series. EA and Activision.
I joined the U.S. Army in 2012 as a 12C(Bridge Crewmember). I was stationed at Fort Polk, LA with my family for 5 years. I deployed to Afghanistan in 2014 for 7 months. It was a great experience and a very different environment. I got out of the Army in May of 2017. Since I’ve been out I’ve just been working and doing the family thing and of course game as much as I can.
Gaming has affected my life so much. I’ve met so many people from all over the world through online gaming. It’s really amazing. Gaming really helps me to keep in touch with people I was in the Army with that shared the love for gaming too.
Keep an eye out after the convention as we will be sharing all the fun these Veterans will experience at TwitchCon as our Air Assaults with our post-convention video shortly after we return to the offices after the weekend. If you are going to be in San Diego and at the convention keep an eye out for the Red Shirts and Stack Up with us at our booth. We hope to see you there!
