    Activision To Donate $1 Million To Veterans Endowment

    It seems that Modern Warfare 2 might actually launch with some good news after all. Activision has announced their plans to donate $1 million to help veterans transition from their lives in the military after being released from service. A group known as CODE (The Call of Duty Endowment) will assist in helping veterans find employment upon coming home from service overseas.

    The CODE advisory council members include MG Matthew P. Caulfield (USMC-Ret.), COL Roger Dimsdale (USA-Ret.), RADM Ronne Froman (USN-Ret.), CPT Gordon H. Mansfield (USA-Ret.), BG James A. “Spider” Marks (USA-Ret.), GEN Montgomery C. Meigs (USA-Ret.), SFC Steve Robinson (USA-Ret.), BG Harry A. Sieben, Jr. (USANG-Ret.), MG Craig Whelden (USA-Ret.) and MCPO Maurice Wilson (USN-Ret.)

    Kotick told the Washington Post that “The joblessness rate that [veterans] 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?”

    Yeah, I won't feel guilty for not buying the game either. Now, if it was a portion of sales profit then I'd feel guilty [while still not buying the game], but at a flat amount I am guiltless.
