The C.O.D.E. bowl returns — Annual Call of Duty showdown between military service members will take place on October 5th

We all love a good battle in Call of Duty, but how about if our own military service members were involved? What if all of the different branches, along with the UK and Canada joined in? Well, that has been happening yearly, and after you watch the Call of Duty NEXT event for Modern Warfare III, you’ll be able to tune in. Check out the details below, and please support the Call of Duty Endowment (C.O.D.E), who throws all of this to support our military!
