One of the biggest games of the year, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, is out next week and with Veterans Day approaching, fans can buy limited edition Call of Duty dog tags that benefit the Call of Duty Endowment, a non-profit that helps veterans transition back to work.
The dog tags, which retail for $4.99, are being sold at stores including GameStop, Walmart, Toys R Us, Best Buy and Target. All proceeds go to the Endowment.
According to Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision, Call of Duty’s publisher, “Supporting our veterans as they re-enter the workforce is one of the most important priorities we have as citizens. Our youngest veterans — those 18 - 24 years old— currently face an unemployment rate that is almost twice the national average of their non-veteran peer group, and this is unacceptable. With the sale of our limited edition Call of Duty Endowment dog tags, we are urging Americans to join us in the support of our heroes as they attempt to re-join the workforce.”
The dog tags can be found in dedicated Call of Duty sections and counter displays throughout the 12,000+ participating stores.
