About Our Family
My wife Jane and I, established Battle House Laser Combat to provide a unique and thrilling form of entertainment in northern Illinois. 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 our daughter's pre-wedding event for the groom, groomsmen, close male relatives and their children at al location in Milwaukee, WI. It was a completely new and exciting experience for everyone involved. Two years later were still talking about the experience and attempting to re-write the history of that day. 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 a member of the NaVOBA, the National Veteran-Owned Business Association, support the Wounded Warriors Project of Illinois and other disabled veteran organizations. My father, Howard, served proudly in the Navy during the Korean War, several of our Uncle’s served in nearly all of the campaigns of World War Two, from Italy, the Pacific and China, and the Korean War. My youngest sister is a West Point graduate and former U.S. Army Captain. My oldest son Darek is a former Army Captain as well, Company Commander within the 82 Airborne and Blackhawk pilot. Darek opened his Battle House in Wilmington, NC one year after ours opened in Illinois. He is opening his second location in Fayetteville, North Carolina (home of Ft. Bragg and the 82nd. I served in the U.S. Air Force during the Cold War as an imagery interpreter specialist stationed at Offutt AFB, Strategic Air Command’s Headquarters in Omaha, NE. We respect and honor the commitment and dedication of our service men and women and their families.Doug Huckbody Managing Partner
