Lockheed Martin Interns Pen Over 500 Thank-Yous to Medical Workers, First Responders and Troops
A simple thank you can go a long way, and more than 500 can go even further.
Over the summer and faced with a pandemic, Missiles and Fire Control interns wrote 503 thank-you letters to emergency medical personnel, healthcare providers, first responders, and deployed troops and National Guard as part of Operation Gratitude.
“They work day in and day out, risking their lives to help those in need. We all agreed that it warmed our hearts to be able to send a little bit of sunshine to brighten their days with our words of encouragement and appreciation,” said Remington Myers, a mechanical engineering intern who helped coordinate the effort with systems engineering intern Shelby Hobohm.
Interns from Lockheed Martin sites located in Camden, Arkansas; Dallas and Lufkin, Texas; Lexington, Kentucky; Orlando, Florida; and Santa Barbara, California, supported this effort. One intern wrote 85 letters.
“Meeting our goal to write 500 letters is great, but knowing that we made a positive impact on 503 people’s day is even better,” Myers said.
