Telos Corporation Named Trout Unlimited 2017 Corporate Conservation Partner

Telos and Trout Unlimited partner to support U.S. veteran community living with the physical and emotional impact of war.

Telos® Corporation, a leading provider of continuous security solutions and services for the world’s most security-conscious organizations, was named the Trout Unlimited (TU) Corporate Conservation Partner of 2017.

Since 2011, Telos has provided funding for TU’s Veterans Service Partnership (VSP), a program that helps veterans find hope and healing through fly fishing and conservation.

“Through the support of TU’s Veterans Service Partnership, Telos is proud to support a program that provides an outlet to the veteran community that can help them navigate the physical and emotional wounds they incur during service to our country,” said John B. Wood, CEO and chairman, Telos. “Being recognized as the 2017 Corporate Conservation Partner is an honor, and we look forward to continuing our support for TU’s VSP for many years to come.”

Trout Unlimited engages its extensive network of volunteers to introduce wounded and returning veterans to conservation work through fly fishing. TU chapters and partner organizations provide instruction, camaraderie and local networks of anglers to the veteran community around the country. TU’s Veterans Service Partnership also provides fishing retreats for veterans with physical and emotional scars, as well as family members grieving the loss of military loved ones.

“Each year, Trout Unlimited honors a company that is uniquely dedicated to our mission and steadfastly supports our important work across the country,” said Chris Wood, president and CEO, Trout Unlimited. “Nearly a decade ago, my brother Emmett Wood, the EVP of marketing at Telos, and I hatched the Veterans Service Partnership over pizza and beer. From that evening Telos has been steadfast in support of our veterans and Trout Unlimited. They have been with us from the beginning and continue to help us expand and grow this truly important work to this day. We’re proud to recognize them as this year’s Corporate Conservation Partner.”

To date, TU chapters across the country have helped nearly 7,000 wounded veterans, donating over 60,000 volunteer hours.
