The Entertainment Consumers Association – the only advocacy group exclusively for gamers – is supporting U.S. military personnel by offering discounted membership. The military discount joins a similar program already offered to students.
Of the move ECA president Hal Halpin said:
We’re excited to extend our 25 percent Student Discount for annual membership dues to all active service men and women with a valid .mil domain extension.
It came as a result of conversations between GamePolitics regular and ECA member, Robert “lexfor” Kalal, who was promoting the association to his fellow gamers in the Air Force while stationed in Turkey.
While we’re aligned with several charities that support the troops, it seemed apparent that extending this discount was yet another way of honoring their service and dedication. The new Military Discount offers prospective members reduced dues of just $14.99 per year.
