Activision's Call of Duty Endowment, which raises money and awareness for military veterans' unemployment, said this week that it donated $25,000 to non-profit group Still Serving Veterans.

Retired U.S. Army Col. Roger Dimsdale, an advisory board member for the endowment, explained at the annual conference of the Association of the United States Army why CODE chose Huntsville, AL-based Still Serving Veterans.

"Still Serving Veterans works vigorously and aggressively to advocate for our nation's veterans, and their strong focus on facilitating veterans' transition and reintegration back into the civilian workforce is one of the key ingredients the Call of Duty Endowment looks for when examining potential grant recipients," he said.

Still Serving Veterans offers support to veterans such as job training and education, as well as help for post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury.

The endowment, which gets its name from Activision's blockbuster Call of Duty military shooter game franchise, aims to address the Labor Department's estimated unemployment rate of 21.1 percent among young Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans. That rate is about double the national average.

CODE is a non-profit organization founded by Activision Blizzard in November 2009. The group pledged to donate $1 million to help unemployed veterans, with an initial donation of $125,000 to Paralyzed Veterans of America.
