Honoring 9/11 through Service and Remembrance

To Lockheed Martin U.S. Employees:

In the hours, days, months and years following the tragic terrorist attacks of September 11, our great nation united to heal and move forward together. Through heroic acts of volunteerism, generous donations, military service, fundraising and simple acts of kindness, we not only rebuilt, we grew stronger.

The U.S. Government has declared September 11 as Patriot Day and a National Day of Service and Remembrance. I can think of no better way to honor the memories of those we lost than to serve others. Whether it’s lending a hand with community activities, volunteering in schools, or providing financial support to worthwhile charities, doing good in our communities reminds us that the American spirit is strong and resilient. It may bend, but it never breaks. And together, we can overcome even the worst of tragedies.

On this 12th anniversary of September 11, 2001, I hope you’ll look for meaningful ways to serve in your community, and join me in solemn reflection on the people we lost, the heroes we witnessed and the strength we found as a nation.
