Krieger (pronounced Kree-Gur) is the German word for Warrior. We chose that name because it reflects our dedication to a life of service to others. Our original group of the same name was created by US military veterans around the year 2009. We’ve kept in touch over the years and rebuilt with the goal of providing a drama free, politics free, team oriented gaming experience and support community for our members.
Our Patch is also a reflection of who we are. The snake is the personification of mental illness, suicide, and depression. The eagle, on the other hand, represents courage and freedom in the face of an inner adversary. Courage to meet the enemy head on, and the freedom to soar to new heights.
