This ‘nerdy’ Special Forces soldier is getting paid to play ‘Call of Duty’ in the US Army | Business Insider

The US Federal Government has an initiative that pays soldiers to collaborate with the Esports community and play video games like Call of Duty while streaming on platforms like Switch. These soldiers train to play the game and then play while people view the highlights of their game. This helps marketing for both the games they play as well as inspiring those who play the game to become the heroes depicted in the game.
