HISTORY:Veterans of Old Earth Wars was founded in the early 21st century as an international social group for veterans and active duty military personnel. It’s early origins and history has never been well understood, outside of its members. Not because it’s members or purpose were hidden, but probably because most veterans find it easier to talk to other veterans. Those that have served, together or against each other, have an understanding of what the others have gone through with very little said. While it started out as a social group, it at some point developed into a PMC, but no one can point to why or even when it happened. Some believe that they ran black ops for the government or the military when deniability was needed. Others have said that some of the major corporations hired them to perform ‘special testing’ of newly designed equipment, or to guard some of their more sensitive convoys. The truth is, none of these, or other, rumors have been proven or confirmed, and probably never will. Even though many of its members belong to various other organizations, they remain a strong military unit. They are highly sought after, and well paid, for their expertise and professionalism in many different fields.

Wing Commander was the 1st PC game I played, and I loved it. I have been saddened by the lack of games like it. I believe this will be a game to enjoy.
The name Shank comes from another Kickstarter I backed "Rotted Capes" in which I was allowed input on making one of the background NPC's in the book, "Shank".
Through that Kickstarter I came across Star Citizen and decided to carry the name over, since I would not have known about this fantastic game without backing that one first.
