The group is using the annual video game conference at the Los Angeles Convention Center to show off its tricked-out 40-foot trailer (click for photos) that houses seven HD TVs, gaming systems and more to allow gamers and troops to go head-to-head virtually.
The Pro vs. GI Joe crew will be hosting gaming tournaments and connecting with deployed service men and women from USO Centers in Iraq and Afghanistan for online gaming from Tuesday, June 7 to Thursday, June 9.
For those going to E3, (which stands for Electronic Entertainment Expo), find the map at the bottom of the linked page to visit the trailer, watch all the action and maybe get to wish our troops well. – Christian Pelusi, USO
