Attention U.S. Military Personnel: Win a copy of Modern Warfare 3!

attention u s military personnel win a copy of modern warfare 3  active dutyAlthough the holiday season is a shaping up to be a good one here in the States (if the Black Friday sales are any indication), there are servicemen and women all over the world that will be away from their loved ones while they are off serving. This contest is for you.

We talked to Activision the other day and told them we wanted to do something for the American military men and women stationed both here and abroad, as well as the veterans that are stateside. Doing something for active duty soldiers and veterans is something that is close to the heart of the publisher–Activision formed an organization designed to help returning veterans find work called the Call of Duty Endowment— and it responded in kind, sending us four copies of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 to giveaway—two for the PS3, and two for the Xbox 360.

In order to win, it couldn’t be simpler: just post your branch, where you are serving or served, and what system you would prefer a copy on, and you will automatically be entered to win. If you are entering for a loved one serving, that is perfectly fine, just enter their branch, what region they are or were in, and the preferred system.

This contest is open to both active duty men and women, as well as veterans. Please do not post personal information, we will collect the relevant info from the winners.

Once we have chosen the four winners, we will contact them via email and ask for a proof of service (a scan of a military ID would be perfect, for example), then we will send your game out.

While this contest is open for anyone in the world, due to regional encoding the games will only work on a North American encoded (NTSC U/C) console, so please keep that in mind.

The contest will end this Friday at 3pm PST. We will do everything in our power to get the game to you or your loved one by Christmas wherever they may be, but we cannot guarantee it. We will at least be able to confirm that it is en route.
