To honor and empower

With mentors, scholarships, Raytheon helping veterans succeed as civilians

Raytheon employees wear T-shirts such as this one on Fridays in honor of deployed military personnel. The shirts are part of RED Shirt Fridays, a nationwide movement to "remember everyone deployed."

From career counseling to care packages for wounded veterans, Raytheon is marking its Week of Service with efforts to help and honor those who have served in the military.

Raytheon’s Week of Service celebrates the volunteer work of employees, many of whom support veterans and military families. Veteran support is a major part of Raytheon’s culture, and more than 10,000 former service members work for the company around the world.

“Everything we do, everything we build, we build it to help members of the military complete their missions and return home safely. But our respect for them, and our desire to help them, lasts well after they have separated from the service,” said Raytheon Chairman and CEO Thomas A. Kennedy, a former U.S. Air Force captain.

This week, and throughout November, Raytheon employees will volunteer in support of the company’s efforts to honor and empower veterans and military families. Those efforts include:


Cathy Kunz, Bishi Dias, Michael Brendes, Jim McCoy and David Ray, all employees in Raytheon's Intelligence, Information and Services business, pick produce and other items while assembling care packages for veterans. The packages were delivered to veterans at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
