Supporting Our Veterans
We partner with several government and private organizations to support the professional development of active and former service members ready to build and/or transition into rewarding civilian careers.
At Lockheed Martin, we have a long-standing commitment to successful job transition for America's veterans — providing opportunities for them to continue contributing to the security of our nation even after their military service. And we are grateful to our partners that help make the transition easier. Learn more about the ways we proudly demonstrate our appreciation by assisting with your career transition.
Veteran jobs mission (FORMERLY 100,000 JOBS MISSION)
Lockheed Martin is proud to be an early member of this coalition which now numbers over 200 leading U.S. companies. Initially launched as the 100,000 Jobs Mission in March 2011 with a goal of hiring 100,000 transitioning service members and military veterans by 2020, the coalition has far surpassed its initial goal and is now committed to hiring one million veterans collectively. Our nation's military and veterans represent the best this country has to offer. We owe our nation's veterans more than gratitude - we owe them the opportunity to lead successful lives following their service. Learn more at: https://www.veteranjobsmission.com.
Hiring Our Heroes
Supporting our fighters is a huge part of what we do, both as a company and as an employer. And our hiring and recruiting practices reflect this 100+ year commitment. Today, we employ approximately 25,000 veterans, and together with Boeing, Alcoa and GE, veterans make up 64,000 of our employees.
We're actively involved in programs that help veterans transition into satisfying, meaningful civilian careers. Among them is Hiring Our Heroes, a U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation initiative to help veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses find meaningful employment opportunities.
Also underscoring our dedication to advancing the hiring of veterans and military spouses, we are a member of the Veterans Employment Advisory Council, through which we establish best practices for veteran employment, provide military transition mentoring, and deliver military hiring assistance to businesses across the U.S.

Military Spouse Employment Partnership
Supporting our service members is a huge part of what we do, as a company and an employer. And in partnership with the Military Spouse Employment Program, we extend the same commitment to their spouses.
Of the 85% of military spouses who want or need to work, 25% are unemployed and 25% earn less than their civilian counterparts. We work to close these gaps by helping them:
- Discover their professional skills, interests, and goals
- Identify academic, licensing, or credentialing requirements for their chosen career paths
- Build self-marketing skills to sell themselves to potential employers
- Maintain valuable employment connections
Over 60,000 military spouses have been hired through this program.
