Proud of My 40-Year Career

Working here has been a family affair
by Chuck C.

My mother retired from Philco-Ford with about 25 years of tenure, and I started there in 1971 in Palo Alto, California. Eventually, Philco-Ford became Aeronutronic Ford and Ford Aerospace, and was later purchased by Loral Corporation. About two years later, Lockheed Martin bought the San Jose Western Development Laboratories (WDL) division. I eventually met my wife, who also retired from Lockheed with about 32 years of service. I'm proud of the 40-year career I had with Lockheed Martin. The funny thing about my mother and wife working there is that they both share the same February 13 birthday!

Congratulations Lockheed Martin!
