Kicking off a brand-new welcome center recently in Orlando, Lockheed Martin teamed with the United Services Organization (USO) in strengthening support services for active duty troops, veterans and their families traveling through the area annually.
At 3,400 square feet, the new facility located at Orlando International Airport ranks as one of the organization’s largest and officials anticipate that it will accommodate close to 10,000 military personnel and their dependents monthly.
"Lockheed Martin and the USO have a longstanding legacy of support to the men and women of our Armed Forces and their families," Lockheed Martin VP Jon Rambeau said. "We're excited to continue that legacy in supporting a flagship center that makes their lives and travel a little easier."
Lockheed Martin has a history of supporting USO programs nationwide. Among its sponsored services are career transition classes, holiday and care package gift box programs as well as localized USO centers. The company’s chairman, president and CEO serves on the USO’s board of governors.
Based in Bethesda, Maryland with a strong presence in Florida, Lockheed Martin employs approximately 98,000 workers in research, design, and manufacturing for advanced technology systems. More than 7,000 employees work in the company’s Orlando complex to support the U.S. military.
