I’m stunned and terribly saddened to hear of the passing of longtime listener Andrew. He helped to give the show the name Wargaming Recon. Andrew was a kind soul who selflessly gave of himself to help those around him. Despite being legally blind he taught children how to wargame.

Wargaming Recon has lost a good friend in his passing. I ask all listeners to join me in a moment of silence in Andrew’s honor.

As a thank you to those backing the show on Patreon I will be releasing episodes to them before anyone else can get the episode.

Don’t want to wait? Why not support Wargaming Recon through our Patreon. It costs just $1 per episode roughly $2 per month. That is less than a cup of coffee.

Thanks to newest Patreon backer Aaron who said:

“I listen to loads of gaming podcasts, but if I’m going to support any of them, I’m going to start with W[argaming] R[econ].”
