As we recover from the epidemic, there is a greater chance and challenge in the labor market. According to Dan Goldenberg, the executive director of the Call of Duty Endowment and vice president of corporate social responsibility at Activision Blizzard, the bottom line is that veterans need assistance more than ever. We are happy to make a difference in getting veterans placed into meaningful employment, but also realize that our job isn''t imminent.
