War. With the onset of this weeks Veteran’s Day and the release of Modern Warfare 2, Activision is set to donate $1 Million to create a new non-profit organization to assist war veterans and soldiers find jobs and mesh back into society.
Formed by a multitude of retired vets, the Call Of Duty Endowment or CODE is a great idea and a thoughtful way to pay tribute to this nations war heroes. Finally being quoted in a positive light, Activision CEO Bobby Kotick had this to say to the Washington Post:
“The joblessness rate that [veterans] should have should be far less than the national average, not more.” “How do you expect people to actually join the military if when they leave the military they can’t integrate back into the free market they’re supposed to be protecting?”
Well put Bobbo. It’s nice to see this type of thing take shape around what most civilians take for granted everyday. Freedom.
