In honor of those who have served their country, Raytheon has renewed its sponsorship of the Raytheon Wounded Warrior Suite in the Shades of Green® Resort at the Walt Disney World® Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla.
The Raytheon Wounded Warrior suite is a 1,200-square-foot, Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant suite that can accommodate up to 10 adults and four children.
In conjunction with the third anniversary of the Sum of all Thrills™ attraction presented by Raytheon, the company also hosted its annual Disney character breakfasts for military families on Oct. 17.

Guests of all ages met and had their pictures taken with their favorite Disney characters: Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Cinderella, Goofy, Buzz Lightyear, Belle, Pluto and Woody.
Shades of Green® is an U.S. Armed Forces Recreation Center used exclusively by active and retired military personnel and their families, as well as Department of Defense civilians.
The continued support for Shades of Green® and the celebratory breakfasts are a small token of appreciation to honor service members and their families.
Raytheon’s relationship with Shades of Green® began in 2009 with the company’s donation of The Family Technology Center, a game room for the guests’ “home away from home.”
The center includes plasma televisions, personal computers, Nintendo Wii and Microsoft Xbox systems, providing an on-site extension of the Disney experience: to relax, connect and enjoy a family getaway.
“Raytheon salutes and thanks all members of the armed services and their families who make daily sacrifices to ensure the well being of all U.S. citizens,” said Pamela Erickson, Raytheon’s vice president of community relations. “Our continued financial support for Shades of Green® and the Wounded Warrior Suite is a small token of our appreciation to these men, women and their families, who have given so much to our nation.”
