When Seaman Aaron Goh woke up the morning of November 4th, he was just one of millions of gamers anticipating the release of Call of Duty: Black Ops, the latest installment in Activision’s multi-billion dollar Call of Duty video game franchise. By day’s end, he would be crowned the military’s best Black Ops player and hoist a giant donation check for $1,000,000 to benefit Iraq and Afghanistan veterans in the Coast Guard’s name. Goh led a team of Coasties to victory in an all-Armed Forces tournament to raise awareness of the Call of Duty Endowment (C.O.D.E.).

According to their website, C.O.D.E. assists “those organizations that provide our former service members with job placement, training and educational services in their post military careers.”
