Lockheed Martin (NYSE: LMT) has become a sponsor of the new United Services Organization (USO) welcome center in Orlando, which officially opened September 21 at the Orlando International Airport, the company said.
Lockheed Martin said it intends to support the center with thousands of volunteer hours provided by its employees who embrace the company´s maxim, “We never forget who we´re working for.”
More than 700,000 active duty troops, veterans and their families fly in and out of Orlando International Airport each year, and the 3,400 square foot welcome center is one of the USO´s largest. Officials project that some 10,000 service members and their dependents will use the center each month.
Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland that employs approximately 98,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services.
