Raytheon honors servicemen and women during National Military Appreciation Month with Hashtags4Heroes gallery #HT4H social advocacy platform provides opportunity to share appreciation of service members past and present

WALTHAM, Mass., May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In support of National Military Appreciation Month, Raytheon Company (NYSE: RTN) is hosting the Hashtags4Heroes "Faces of Service" gallery to recognize all who have served in uniform.

Raytheon is encouraging Americans to express their appreciation for the contributions of service members by recognizing their commitment through images. Simply tag a picture on Twitter, Instagram or Vine with the hashtag #HT4H (Hashtags4Heroes) to share photos of your military heroes past and present in the "Faces of Service" photo gallery on www.hashtagsforheroes.com.

The Hashtags4Heroes program uses social media's vast reach to salute the troops. This gallery is the latest iteration of the program that began last year to raise awareness for wounded warriors. In November 2012, the program expanded to include all veterans, culminating in a daylong celebration on Veterans Day.
