A clan of shooter players has rallied an effort around a museum to the people they fight as in games. Easy Company 506th PIR is a tactical shooter and historical game clan that’s dedicated to commemorating the history of the American 101st Airborne in World War 2. Nicholas Collins, known online as Winter5427, is a leader of the group. “One of our members came to us about this airborne museum,” he said. Hotel Hartenstein is in Oosterbeek, The Netherlands, and is a museum commemorating the efforts of Allied paratroops in World War 2’s Operation Market Garden. The COVID-19 pandemic has hurt the museum badly. “They’re out 300,000 euro,” said Collins. That’s when the gamers of Easy decided they could help. They set up a GoFundMe which quickly beat its initial goal of €2,000.
