Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has announced that for the fourth consecutive year, it is sponsoring the Fighting Spirit Scholarship to honor wounded veterans, the company said.
The scholarship program provides wounded veterans opportunities to experience flying, sailing and competitive exercise through three nonprofit organizations: Able Flight, Adaptive Training Foundation and Warrior Sailing.
In addition to attending the training programs at no cost, each scholarship recipient and a guest receives roundtrip flights to Fort Worth for a tour of the Lockheed Martin F-35 production facility, VIP tickets to the 2019 Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl game and access to other exclusive bowl-related activities.
Able Flight, Adaptive Training Foundation and Warrior Sailing selected one candidate for the Fighting Spirit Scholarship from the pool of applicants who applied through their respective websites.
Warrior Sailing trains wounded, ill and injured military service members and veterans in the sport of sailing and sailboat racing. Training is facilitated by world class coaches using techniques and equipment adapted to meet the different needs of the wounded, ill and injured veterans they serve. These are hands-on training courses, not boat rides, and include opportunities ranging from introductory courses to participation in international competitions. www.warriorsailing.org
