In memory of Choogelaar

From Craazy (Sandra): Some of you are aware of the story with Choog and I that about 14 years ago we met on Americas Army playing mountain pass. I still recall the very day he started playing. The first time i heard his voice he melted my heart, he also told me he was fascinated and wanted to learn more about me. Many years went by with us battling in AA, mostly him owning me, he was dangerous with a 203 and sniper. It took us both close to seven years before either one of us made a move to start talking outside the game. Choog didn’t believe people could fall in love over the internet, boy did i show him. The connection him and I shared were deeper feelings and emotions than i had ever felt. I went to the Netherlands and visited with him for two weeks meeting all the clan members and spending every second with Choog.

It then took us 18 months before the U.S got his paper work approved, people thought we were both crazy waiting that long for someone u met on the internet, but i had no doubts he was the man i would spend my entire life with. Choog was the crazy one, he sold his car, his house, quit his job and jumped on a plane and started a new life with me apparently he had no doubts either.


Our life together was perfect i think are only issues was who was going to make coffee, get the beer, and yell stop hacking! No WAY you shot me. The game has always been a huge part of our lives, we talk about it at work, in the truck, before we go to bed, all of you guys that live in our headsets have become friends, and like family to us.

I refuse to let this memory ever go this game gave me the most incredible person i ever crossed paths with.

Choogelaar's clan has set up a Go Fund Me account to assist his family in this time of need.
The game wasn't made exactly to my specifications, so I feel it's broken.

    My thoughts are with his friends and family. I'm sorry I never really got to know Choogelaar, who was a fellow Beta Tester. Many people speak highly of him, and how they will miss him, and how he was so young. Thanks for posting this, Tots.

    Choog was a great guy and a great friend. He taught me a lot while I was at TPA. He was kind, patient and understanding amongst other things. My heart goes out to his family and Crazy. RIP Choog I will miss you.
