Raytheon Supports Wounded Warriors with Donation to Operation: Tohidu

LEXINGTON PARK, Md.—Raytheon Company, a Patuxent Partnership (TPP) member and benefactor, demonstrated the spirit of the season with a $5,000 donation to Operation Tohidu, a program designed to assist the growing population of warfighters living with post traumatic stress and other deployment related traumas.

Veterans and others, such as first responders, experience a holistic retreat where they are able to share a common experience and heal in a safe environment.

Chuck Angus, site manager for the Raytheon field office presented a check to Cari DeSantis, president and CEO of Melwood, the parent organization for Operation: Tohidu, prior to the Association of Naval Aviation (ANA) and TPP panel last week.

“This is a great opportunity for our community to give back to our warfighters and first responders. They sacrifice everything to protect our country so this is the least we can do,” Angus said.

Community interest in Operation: Tohidu has increased following outreach programs in Southern Maryland including a comprehensive brief at the TPP 2015 annual meeting in October.

“Operation: Tohidu empowers wounded warriors and allows them a secure place to share common experiences,” said Bonnie Green, TPP Executive Director. “The program gives the participants the confidence to re-shape their lives.”

The Patuxent Partnership works with government, industry and academia on initiatives in science and technology, hosts programs of interest to NAWCAD, NAVAIR and the broader DoD community, and supports workforce development including education initiatives and professional development.
