Call of Duty Video Game to Help Veterans
According to NBC News, the video game Call of Duty and its maker Activision Blizzard, is providing $30,000 grants for charities that excel at helping veterans transition into successful careers after they leave the U.S. military. Their ultimate goal is to not merely place vets in any sort of job, but to develop assessment tests to find the right training and job for each skill set. The specialized training that people receive in the service needs to be translated into earnable dollars in the civilian world.
Call of Duty lists on its website several employers who offer special services to veterans and have programs to hire them. It also has a running list of organizations able to train vets, including disabled vets.
