Focusing on providing veteran’s with meaningful work, C.O.D.E has the honor of placing 100k veterans in high-quality jobs. Now, they can continue to give back for Veteran’s Month. Today, the Call of Duty Endowment announced that Citadel Founder and CEO Kenneth C. Griffin is providing the endowment with a massive donation. Totaling at $2.5 Million, the donation is the single largest private donation that the C.O.D.E has ever received. Importantly, this donation comes as Call of Duty launches its next endowment events and a new pack: Knight Recon. A press release provides more info on what’s coming in game as well as a response from Kenneth C. Griffin.

“I am proud to support our military veterans who have given years of their lives to defend America and our freedoms. These men and women represent the very best of our country’s enduring values,” said Griffin in the press release, “The Call of Duty Endowment honors the service of these heroes by helping them bring their capabilities to superlative jobs in the private sector.”

Of course, this donation is another in Griffin’s support for organizations supporting veterans.
