Lockheed Martin made the donation to the SSV, which offers careers and community support to wounded veterans and their families. This donation marks the beginning of a three-year commitment and partnership that Lockheed Martin is making to help the launch of this important new organization.

At Lockheed Martin, we never forget who we’re working for, and that doesn’t end when they come back from serving our country. We stand side-by-side with our customers every day, and we honor their sacrifices. It is only fitting that we also support their interests.”
“This donation represents the beginning of a three-year commitment that Lockheed Martin is making to help the launch of this important new organization,” continued Abbott. “We are committed to this organization and to the Veterans who have served our country.”
