Activision Makes Call of Duty Endowment

Today is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 day, and there will be lots of dollars being poured into Activision as gamers hand over their cash for what will be one of the biggest titles of the year.

Also launching alongside the game is Activision Blizzard's Call of Duty Endowment (CODE), non-profit public benefit corporation will focus its resources on assisting organizations that provide job placement and training to veterans.

BG Gary H. Cheek, the Assistant Surgeon General of Warrior Care and Transition and Commander of the Warrior Transition Command said at the launch event, "I could make the case that based upon the service and sacrifice of our veterans that American employers have their own call of duty to ensure they have the opportunity for gainful employment and a viable career. Our soldiers have a lot to offer: integrity, discipline, teamwork, and personal sacrifice for a greater good. I can think of no stronger candidates for any positions employers might be looking to fill. These brave men and women willingly put their lives on the line to protect the blessings of liberty enjoyed by every business in this great country of ours."

Activision will use some of the proceeds from Modern Warfare 2 to fund the Call of Duty Endowment and raise awareness for this important issue.
