In February 2021, Amentum announced a three-year partnership with Make-A-Wish Mid-Atlantic, a non-profit that creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses who reside in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and northern Virginia. During the partnership, Amentum became a Founding Partner of Operation Dream Maker to focus on granting wishes to children of Uniformed Services families. Since a third of Amentum’s employees are veterans, it’s a cause near to our people.

As a proud partner, we have already granted wishes to 16 children of families who are currently active duty, reserves, or veterans. Here are some of the wish kids:
