Progressive employer Northrop Grumman overtly supported Military Appreciation Month throughout the month of May.

Military Appreciation Month takes place every year and sees the President of the United States issue an annual proclamation reminding Americans to celebrate this patriotic month that pays tribute to those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. The entire month is designated to honoring past and present military members and their families.

"Supporting our U.S. Armed Forces is ingrained in what we do. Thank you to those who have contributed and sacrificed to protect our nation," said Northrop Grumman.
