Default The Grim Reapers Need Our Help!

I trust most pilots in the DCS community are familiar with the Grim Reapers, a fictitious mercenary outfit flying self-made campaigns in DCS and filming them for our benefit and entertainment. Their output is prolific and relentless, ranging from discussions, tutorials, and of course their hour long (or more!) missions and debriefs, with the odd Arma mission even thrown in.


Unfortunately, fortune took a slight turn for the worst as the Grim Reaper's leader "Cap" was diagnosed with late-stage cancer a couple of days ago. While the prognosis is positive, he will be undergoing chemotherapy over the next 9 weeks and will spending most of his time in the hospital.





Most of us know the toll chemo can take on the body, and during this time Cap and his family could really use our help. A GoFundMe has been set up by the Grim Reapers to help them during Cap's treatment and recovery.

If you're able, please consider donating what you can to this pillar of the DCS community. Thanks so much!

Cancer is not something to joke about and should be taken seriously. My thoughts and prayers go to him. I hope he gets well soon.

Well as most probably one of the most ineffective pilots in DCS I'll fly as a bad guy and will be shot down happily in keeping with your update. You, Cap, set autopilot for home plate and get well soon.
