Wounded Warrior Project gets Grant

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Raytheon Co., a defense contractor whose products include missiles and electronics, has given the Wounded Warrior Project a five-year, $2.5 million grant.

Cisco, an information technology giant, also said it's extending an existing commitment for training support in a joint Veterans Day announcement Thursday by the two companies and the Jacksonville-based Wounded Warrior Project.

The companies are helping the national not-for-profit organization expand its information technology training programs for injured veterans and add a new one in cyber security. The goal is to help them re-enter the workplace.

Cisco has donated $1.25 million in cash and in-kind aid since 2006 to transition training that has graduated 966 veterans.
