Aaron Johnson served in Special Forces as a sergeant and small unit tactical instructor. Now, he is an Associate Game Manager at Ripple Effect, a studio that is working on supporting the next Battlefield. He is a big fan of the franchise and revealed “I cried a lot when I received the news that I am part of the team”.

Madison Daugherty is a former military officer who has served in Romania, Bulgaria and Germany. After a three-month partnership with Hiring Our Heroes providing realistic feedback on military topics, she was hired full-time as product manager for the Battefield franchise at Ripple Effect.
