Soldier – Gamer Dies in Iraq

….another in an occasional series of reports about gamers who gave their all:

A gamer who served his country in the U.S. Army has lost his life in Iraq. The Associated Press reports that Spc. Randy W. Pickering, 31, died Sunday in Baghdad. Randy loved comic books and video games, his brother said:

He did his computer thing. He loved video games. Video games and comics were his life.

On his MySpace, Randy described himself as:

…a young loner on a crusade to champion the cause of the innocent, the helpless, the powerless, in a world of criminals who operate above the law.

Also on MySpace, he listed Mario and Luigi among his heroes.

Rest in peace, Randy…
