Call of Duty: WWII Honors Heroes That Inspired The Story For Veterans Day (VIDEO)
As this year’s Veterans Day comes to a close, we reflect on all the men and women that have worn answered the call of their country. Activision, with the release of Call of Duty: WWII, also wanted to share the stories of some of the men who inspired them to go back to this historical setting.
Three videos were released that told the story of the different experiences the men faced in their time of war. From discussing the heroics witnessed at the beaches of Normandy, or the horrors endured by the men in the Ardennes forest at the battle of the Bulge – it’s hard to fathom the trials and tribulations these heroes all faced.
In the three videos that were released for Veterans Day, three gentlemen shared their stories from World War II:
- Steve Melnikoff from the 29th Infantry Division – Day of Heroes
- Jack Foy from the 87th Infantry Division – Sacrifice
- Paul Martinez from the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment – Brotherhood
As we play our games and enjoy ourselves this weekend, let’s all take a moment to thank those men and women from the past, present, and future members of our armed services. Without the sacrifices by heroes like the ones seen in the below videos, games like Call of Duty: WWII would have a much different storyline. From all of us at Don’t Feed the Gamers, thank you to all our veterans for their service!
Call of Duty: WWII is available now on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
