Continuing the Legacy

Working at Lockheed Martin spans many generations
by Mary G.

We are a Lockheed Martin family! My son, Tom, went to work at Lockheed right out of the Navy. At the time, I lived in Redwood City, California, and there were layoffs at the electronics company where I worked. Tom urged me to apply at the plant in Sunnyvale in 1986 when the Challenger exploded. I was with the company until 1998, when I retired. My son is now head manager of the submarine division at Sunnyvale. His son, Ryan, is a submariner also he was also an officer! They work in the same buildings. Tom’s daughter, Marissa, is a buyer at Lockheed Martin in Orlando. The company has been very good to our family, especially when the young ones were in college!
