Copies of the blockbuster game were presented to sailors by actor Rob Corddry and Rear Adm. Ronne Froman, USN Ret., a member of the CODE advisory council, during a special event aboard USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) in San Diego, CA. The games will be distributed to over 300 ships and submarines, as well as Navy Morale, Welfare and Recreation facilities around the world.

 

"Not only is it important to raise awareness of the issue of veterans' unemployment, it is also really cool to bring a game to service members and let them have some fun after spending so much time serving their country," said Rob Corddry. "They really deserve it and I am so glad that I can be a part of it."

 

CODE is a non-profit, public benefit corporation that seeks to help soldiers transition to civilian careers after their military service. The endowment focuses its resources on assisting organizations that provide job placement and training to veterans, as well as engaging the media and public forums to raise awareness about the issue.
