Metallica rock a group of fans in Santa Monica last night in an effort to raise $1 million for troops returning from service.

The rockers played at the launch of Activision’s Call Of Duty: Black Ops game in Hanger 8 to raise money for the Call Of Duty Endowment, a charity dedicated to ensuring that veterans are provided a clear path to new careers after their military service is complete.

“We are honored to have Metallica partner with us to pay tribute to the brave servicemen and women who have risked their lives at war only to return home to find their biggest challenge is searching for a job,” stated Robert Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard. “Today, the unemployment rate for veterans is 21 percent higher than the rate for all Americans, with veterans’ unemployment topping 500,000. We believe that the business community can and should do more.”
