Building Aircraft to Keep America Strong

Patriotism never goes out of style
by Marilyn S.

It has been a family tradition to work for Convair, Consolidated Aircraft, General Dynamics and Lockheed Martin. My dad (Ira W. Sutton) worked in construction to produce the "mile-long" building where our planes roll out the door. After serving in the South Pacific arena (United States Army), he joined the team at the "bomber plant" and worked in just about every department producing the finest planes. Along with cousins, aunts and uncles, it has been my good fortune to retire from Lockheed Martin. Keep building those planes, and keep America strong!
