Activision setting up fund for unemployed military veterans

In a rare classy move, the folks at Activision are going to be donating $1 million to create a fund that will help unemployed soldiers find a job after they leave the service.  The Call of Duty Endowment (CODE) will help provide training to those leaving the service and provide them with critical assistance in finding new work opportunities.

Most of the Modern Warfare 2 news lately has been a bit negative which is why it's nice to be able to post something positive about the game and Activision for once.  With the unemployment rate going over double digits for the first time in a generation or so it's even harder for military personnel to find jobs and the CODE program will hopefully help some former soldiers find a new job.

Thanks to 1Up for the scoop.
