  1. Welcome back gamers, veterans, supporters and readers! Thanks for stopping in and reading 20 Questions here at the new Front Towards Gamer! This edition of 20 Questions will be with Glenn Banton [GB] CEO of Operation Supply Drop @OpSupplydrop 1) We all had that first video game experience that hooked us in one way or another, what was your first video game moment? [GB] While I'd played plenty of games prior, the first moment was beating Super Mario Bros on NES. I even remember the friend's house I was at in Austin, Texas and have showed my kids. It was not however a fulfilling experience. As you may know, beating the game, isn't "beating the game" it simply starts over on Hard Mode. I can remember clearly how my excitement changed to immediate frustration when this happened. I guess you can say that was the beginning of my overly critical point of view on gaming. Aside from this moment, I remember saving my money for those tiger hand held games, Bo Jackson Football/Baseball in particular. Back then earning 20$ was difficult, that could be a weekend of collecting cans for recycling at a nickel a pop. 2) If you could trade places with any other person for a month, famous or not, living or dead, with whom would it be and why? [GB] Odd question. Am I trading places because of their circumstances in which I then make the decisions or because I simply become them and then live out their life for a month? If the former, I have no ideas because my changing stupid policy in the past may harm irreversibly where we all are now. For the latter, I'd pick Teddy Roosevelt either while in Cuba for the Spanish-American war, during his safari in Africa or on his excursion to the "wild west". 3) We currently have been asking this question with some interesting responses, BF map mash up, what two maps would you "mash" together? [GB] Operation Locker with Shanghai literally combining them so that there is more playable space on the surface and 6 spots for domination. The make it 64v64. Madness ensures. 4) How often do you get a chance to play BF Hardline? What is your favorite mode so far? [GB] Not a lot. I'm having trouble wrapping my mind around the whole cops & robbers theme and it being called "Battlefield" The few times I have turned it on for multi-player I play a map then turn on BF4. I have played some of the campaign, the story is solid, the voice acting is good, the flow make sense, but even so, it's a bit of a tedious game. I just feel BF4 still has legs. I need my military theme, tanks and destruction. 5) What has been your favorite map in BF Hardline? [GB] No opinion, though any with a city theme make the most sense. 6) What game do you think changed the way we play games forever? [GB] I don't believe this is a single game, it's more certain games, even series change and the hardware itself that changes thing. The games that changed how I viewed gaming over the years were GTA (starting with the first), Fable 2, World of Warcraft and the Battlefield 3. 7) What was your first online game? and on what? (pc, ps, xbox) [GB] World of Warcraft PC. I'd never considered playing online and couldn't figure the draw, WoW changed my perspective. 8) If you were an animal what type and why? [GB] Hmmm. A wolf. Because they are awesome. On a different question about animals, I want to ride a rhinoceros, that's on my bucket list. Sadly I'll likely kick said bucket before that happens. 9) What is the weirdest item I find in your refrigerator right now? [GB] Carbonated cold-brewed Coffee is probably the weirdest. It's still there because I'm a bit uncertain of wanting to actually drink it. 10) If you could make your own Easter egg for a game, what would it be and how would it be triggered ? [GB] Some sort of weird super glitch where the gravity turns off and all the other players launch to the sky, but glitch style where they may get caught on polygons somewhere. I love a good glitch, even writing this has me chuckling. 11) What has been your favorite Easter Egg? Megladon, Phantom, Yeti, or from previous years? [GB] There is an Easter egg in Undead Labs game Lifeline that is a supply room representing Operation Supply Drop - can't get better than that. 12) What is your favorite gun to shoot sir? [GB] Any gun that is in my hand. I'm an equal opportunity trigger puller... though I'm partial to my own AR since it mine (with ACOG and suppressor)... there are many like it, but this one is mine. 13) If you could shoot any gun what gun would you pick? and why? [GB] I'd love to shoot a Mark 19 Grenade launcher or M240... why? Because guns. 14) What one thing sticks out as the biggest thing the serving in the military has taught you sir? [GB] I personally did not serve, I serve those that do or have. I can still answer that these individuals have taught me a lot about sacrifice and loyalty which I've then applied to my own life as much as possible. They serve naturally as the inspiration for everything I do with OSD. 15) What is Operation Supply Drop? [GB] OSD is the most generational relevant troops support organization in the world. We serve US and NATO troops, both active-duty and prior-service, using gaming as a catalyst to develop community. We are a 501(c)(3) as classified by the IRS. Link 16) How does it work ? [GB] We have a number of different programs that span from active-duty through prior service including supply drops, thank you deployments, vet-owned business mentor-ship, and our newest program The Teams. We strive to connect both the military community with itself as well as the civilian supporters to change the culture of how we all collectively support our troops. 17) How is this helpful to the Veterans and Military troops? [GB] There are many benefits of each of these programs depending on where a troops is in their life. These range from providing a safe distraction and fun while downrange, to empowerment to our vets wanting to start a business, to actually saving lives within the context of our program, The Teams. This is a community, first and foremost. There is no "home" for this generation, we will provide this much needed hub for those that have sacrificed so much. 18) What one super power would you want and why? [GB] Ability to clone myself. I love what I do and wish I could accomplish even more, faster. 19) What does OSD need the help with the most right now? [GB] On equal footing is both fund raising and program evangelism. We need funding to continue to support and grow our services, but we also need to continue to find the people who need this type of community. 20) How do we help out? [GB] In line with the above question, I recommend looking at the local chapters of our program, The Teams which is for active-duty, vets and civvies. On a monthly basis the members get together for what we call "Mandatory fun" which spans from picnics to paint ball to sporting events to just hanging out. 21) This last spot was saved just as thank you from myself for your service to the Military and their families! Thank you for everything you do sir! [GB] Thank YOU for the opportunity to participate. Was fantastic speaking with Glen Banton in this edition of 20 Questions. Looking forward to see what OSD brings to its troops next! What do you want to do on your bucket list? Tell us below in the comments.

This round of 20 Questions will be with Crunch [CR] Battlefield Content Creator 1) We all had that first video game experience that hooked us in one way or another, what was your first video game moment? [CR] My first video game moment was playing Tomb Raider on Playstation 1, trying to figure out all the clues and battle the bosses. 2) Why did you start making videos for others? [CR] I started making videos because I wanted to see where it would take me. I have such a fun time editing, creating and finding new ways to make my videos better but I wanted to meet people who had the same passion. 3) We currently have been asking this question with some interesting responses, BF map mash up, what two maps would you "mash" together? [CR] noshahr canals and Wave Breaker. Just imagine how that would come out! Here are some answers from others on same question.. [ZachMumbach]I’m going with Caspian Border with Metro running below ground. [DanSheridan] Tricky one – Damavand Peak from Battlefield 3, I love the jump off the edge of the cliff, a great use of the parachutes. At the bottom of the cliff I would put Valparaiso from Battlefield Bad Company 2, for an epic Rush battle. [BobbyMiller] Hainan resort and Zavod 311, they’re my two favorite vanilla maps! [DanMitre] Oh, that’s a good one. Propaganda on top with a subterranean OP Locker. [P4D] Mine would be Damavand Peak on top of OP Metro match B to B. 4) How often do you get a chance to play Hardline? What is your favorite mode so far?and map? [CR] I don't get a lot of time to play Hardline because I have been focused on school as well as making videos.

[CR] The last movie I watched was Tomorrowland starring George Clooney. My top movie of all time is The Warriors. Great movie! 6)What game do you think changed the way we play games forever? [CR] Good question. I would say FPS games have changed the way we played games. I mean there are competitive teams that play for a living. I think that changed the way people play games because they probably play a little bit more competitively now. 7) If you could trade places with any other person for a month, famous or not, living or dead, with whom would it be and why?

Just hope I don't put a hole through my wall while playing Mortal Kombat. 11) Over the years what is the one vehicle thats your go to when its time to mob with a group online?

[CR] Yes, honestly I don't think it would be that bad. I would ask for a salt and pepper though also a little bit a cheese wouldn't hurt. 18) Which would be scarier to you in a nightmare.. Gordan Ramsey or Ronda Rousey? [CR] Ronda Rousey, she will f*ck me up! 19) If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? [CR] I'm a city boy!
