NCOs On Parade
This new page was born out of the idea that the majority of TAW is built around our non-commissioned members. This page will represent those members with questions that will give insight into various subject matter, both personal and TAW related. If you'd like to participate, please send an email to Shelrabbi@gmail.com.

Could you tell our readers a little about your personal life, e.g. where you’re from, do you work or are you still in school.
I hail from a city in Ontario, Canada (Go Canada). I completed a machinist apprenticeship last June and am now undergoing training for an industrial millwright apprenticeship and health and safety committee worker rep. I work full time as a machinist and may possibly be night shift foreman by the time this is written.
Could you give our readers some background on your gaming career?
Where to start? lol. I started off playing disc games along the line of Zoo Tycoon, Force Unleashed and Dungeon Keeper on PC. I played various PS2 games as well as the complete pokemon series. I started on steam in 2013 with Left 4 Dead 2 and that was my main game for 2 years. Ran with some of the pro players in L4D2, but sadly the game died out. After that I got into games along the lines of Ark Survival Evolved, Prison Architect, Total War Warhammer, The Forest, Planet Coaster, Ghost Recon Wildlands and Rainbow Six Siege.
What brought you to the TAW community?
I was looking for people to play Rainbow Six Siege with on a regular basis that actually used mics to communicate (randoms who play and have mics but don't use them you know who you are haha)
What was your first impression of TAW?
Friendly community with many active players.
From your point of view, what is one of the most important benefits of being in a gaming community such as TAW and why?
Cooperation and teamwork. Playing team based games can be hard and frustrating without a proper network of communication.
Do you at this point in time, have any aspirations of taking on a leadership role? If yes, why?
At this point i do not believe i would be the right fit as I am very busy with life at home and work.
Do you have any special hobbies or activities outside of TAW?
I enjoy travelling North America, specifically the States.
From all of us at NEWS, thank you for taking the time to do this Sergeant!
