About Our Family

We established Battle House to provide a unique and thrilling form of entertainment in southeastern North Carolina. Our bottom line objective is for our customers and our employees to have fun, “serious fun” in a safe and comfortable environment.

Our family’s initial introduction to Tactical Laser Tag was my sister’s pre-wedding event for the groom, groomsmen, close male relatives and their children at a indoor laser tag facility in Milwaukee, WI. It was a completely new and exciting experience for everyone involved. Years later we are all still talking about the experience and attempting to re-write the history of that day. Since then we have gone back to the Milwaukee facility and have introduced many other family members and friends to this adrenaline pumping, team based sport.

Our family has a long line of military service and are very much interested in supporting active military, veterans and public safety employees. Our hiring efforts are focused on veterans including those who have been disabled. We believe their first hand knowledge and experience will be of benefit to our customers and allow them to learn first-hand close quarters battle techniques. We are also planning to support the Wounded Warriors Project or other local non-profit organizations.

My grandfather served proudly in the Navy during the Korean War. My aunt is a West Point graduate and former U.S. Army Captain. My father served in the U.S. Air Force during the Cold War as an imagery interpreter specialist.  I served in the National Guard and the Army as a Company Commander in the 82 Airborne and Blackhawk pilot.

We respect and honor the commitment and dedication of our service men and women and their families.
