Lockheed Martin is showing its support for veterans

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - Lockheed Martin is showing its support for veterans and the military in a variety of ways leading up to Veterans Day.

Today, employees assisted the organization Operation Homefront. 

Volunteers prepared holiday snack packs that included apples and a variety of candies.

The special treats will be distributed to local military families. 

Lockheed Director of Naval Helicopters Tom Kane says that they actively support those who serve.

He says there's a reason many employees wear red on Fridays. 

"We regularly wear red shirts on Friday. RED stands for remember everyone deployed. Just to be mindful that there are people away from their families. This time of year specifically we remember people want to be with their families and it's tough when you're not with your family. So this time of year we try to especially remember those that are serving with our military."

Tomorrow evening, you'll have your chance to wear RED in support of the troops.

The Binghamton Devils are partnering with Lockheed Martin for Military Appreciation Night during their game tomorrow against the Utica Comets.

Veterans and active military members can receive a free ticket to the game and can purchase additional tickets for $16.

Lockheed will be providing all fans in attendance with a red remembrance t-shirt that they can wear to create a Red Out.

The players will be wearing special military-style camo jerseys.
