Lockheed Martin‘s Sikorsky subsidiary has received recognition for contributions in support of the National Guard Education Foundation.
Sikorsky garnered NGEF’s BG William W. Spruance Legacy Award at the National Guard Association of the United States’ 140th General Conference and Exhibition in New Orleans, Lockheed said Saturday.
The award recognizes people and firms that have significantly supported NGEF and helped the organization raise awareness on the National Guard’s contributions to the U.S.
Sikorsky has contributed a total of $240K to help NGEF conserve and manage various National Guard monuments within the country.
The company also worked with the government to provide 165 Black Hawk helicopters for the National Guard.
“It is an honor to support both the National Guard and NGEF missions and equip our Guardsmen and women with the Black Hawk,” said Dana Fiatarone, vice president for Army and Air Force systems at Sikorsky.
