A note from Norm Robbins, Lockheed Martin:

During the panel discussion on Monday, I mentioned our Annual Report as a mechanism to help funding recipients determine Lockheed Martin's areas of interests.  If interested, click here and then click on "2012 Annual Citizenship Report" to see how our employees are making a difference in all of our communities.  There are some great videos and testimonials embedded in the report that are worth taking the time to watch.
