Veterans attending a university in Washington D.C. are calling out Greek life in what may be a showdown fantasized by any veteran who used the G.I. Bill and found themselves mildly annoyed by fraternities.

Military veteran students at American University in D.C. are challenging the campus’ fraternal organizations, posting a humorous video in anticipation of the event.

The video was produced by Bradley Howard (who currently is studying film at the college) and depicts a veteran gearing up for the competition in a style reminiscent Rambo: First Blood, only to be told that the event isn’t until November.

The event -known as the All-American Showdown- will take place on November 4th for two hours.

“The All-American Showdown is a tournament competition where teams will face military style events that will test each team’s strength, mental stability, and spirit. There will be a mens and womens division, eight teams per division, four people per team.” the Facebook event page says.

An entrance fee of $40 per team will be charged and proceeds will go to charities that assist homeless veterans in the D.C. area.

Popular Military reached out to one of the event coordinators for more information, but could not establish contact at this time.
