What the heck does this have to do with video games? Well not a whole lot really, at least not directly anyway. C.O.D.E. or Call Of Duty Endowment is a website sponsored by Activision and Call of Duty. The main goal of the site is to help Veterans find jobs after the military. This has been a problem across America for a long time and something needs to be done about this. So Activision has answered the “Call of Duty” and created the C.O.D.E. website to raise awareness and help combat against this issue.
Earlier this afternoon, C.O.D.E. posted a list of upcoming job fairs specifically for Veterans. If you know a Veteran who is jobless and happens to live in these areas, please pass this information on to them. Remember, without our Veterans, there would be no freedom to play video games, among many, many other things. The list of the job fairs is as follows:

Some of you may not know this, but our very own Steven Artlip, creator and owner of Platform Nation, is a Veteran of the armed forces, so I believe this is something that Platform Nation takes seriously. Please show your support by helping your local Veterans.
