Call of Duty: WWII Honors Veterans This Weekend
In celebration of Veteran’s Day, Activision shared the first of a three-part video series featuring stories from several World War II veterans who graciously volunteered to share their memories with the publisher. Check out the video called “Call of Duty: WWII Brotherhood” here:
The interviews were filmed at Fort MacArthur in San Pedro, CA, just miles away from Activision’s headquarters in Santa Monica. Speaking with these veterans was an inspiring and humbling experience for the Activision team.
Activision said in an email to COGconnected:
“We’re proud to pay tribute to these incredible heroes and want to invite the entire gaming community to celebrate their heroism and living memories. Stay tuned for Parts 2 and 3, which will debut tomorrow on our YouTube channel at 10 a.m. PT. Activision is committed to supporting our veterans and we invite fans to join our cause to help them find high-quality jobs through the Call of Duty Endowment. In addition, we encourage you to visit and support The Greatest Generations Foundation, whose partnership and collaboration was vital to the making of this series. We’d like to thank them for their work to ensure the memories of our bravest heroes are recorded and retold in perpetuity to future generations.”
