UTC Aerospace Systems is proud to support the nation’s veterans with a donation of $100,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project through its ISR & Space Systems business.  A check presentation event was held in Windsor Locks, Conn. on November 12. The Wounded Warrior Project will use this donation to support programs for long-term injured veterans.

"We are grateful for the support UTC Aerospace Systems is providing to help Wounded Warrior Project's programs and services," said Adam Silva, chief development officer of Wounded Warrior Project. "While the financial support is tremendous, they are also doing their part to build awareness of the challenges injured veterans face. We're honored by their commitment to the warriors we serve."

In addition to the check presentation, other fundraising and recognition events were held at eight ISR & Space Systems locations during Veterans’ Week. In addition to the physical wounds, it is estimated as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat-related stress, major depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Another 320,000 are believed to have experienced a traumatic brain injury while on deployment.

"At ISR & Space Systems, supporting the warfighter is core to what we do every day, providing our customers with technology and advanced tools that enable mission success," said Tom Bergeron, president ISR & Space Systems. "Our commitment to service personnel extends beyond the battlefield, and we are proud to show our support for veterans when they return home.”
