I think I'd rather have Tiger Woods, the series can be really fun, especially if your playing multiplayer.

"What do out troops need?" "More effective gear that could help save their lives?" "Nah.. some video games."

Still good to see a morale booster.

That's a pretty valid point, I think the under funded and under equipped Canadian military could have used the funds better else where. But like you said, it definitely is a pretty awesome morale booster.

Kind of an interesting selection of games though.

yep to get out of the routine of war you go an play some Call of duty.

You could look at it as being combat training.. with respawns.

Combat training? lmao I hope you're joking because if you believe COD gives you combat training and experience then you are a fool. COD and any other FPS video games is nothing like the real thing and if you don't believe come ask us veterans on our website

Nothing like real combat, just an escape from reality.

I'm not an idiot, it was just a joke.
