I'm looking forward to what the future holds and I'm humbled and grateful to receive this acknowledgment."
The award was announced at this year’s POSTAL X-Mas Party, an event staged every year in RWS’ hometown of Tucson, Arizona that brings RWS together with its fans, MOD masters and long-time members of the POSTAL family."
