Behind the many global security and defense products that Northrop Grumman manufactures are the dedicated men and women in the U. S. military. Supporting those who have given so much to defend this nation is deeply important to Northrop Grumman and its employees who volunteer to stuff care packages at Ft. Belvoir for deployed troops, provide food baskets for local military families, and serve food to Marine reservists at the USO Lounge at Dulles Airport. The 2011 Military Bowl presented by Northrop Grumman will be held December 28 at RFK Stadium. For more information on Northrop Grumman, click here.
