L-3 Communications, one of the nation’s largest defense contractors and leading providers of an extensive range of communication and electronic systems and products used on military and commercial platforms, has gifted an additional $1,000,000 toward construction of the National Museum of the United States Army.
“L-3 Communications was one of the first companies to step forward and make a leadership contribution in support of the Museum project at the outset of our campaign,” said General Gordon Sullivan (USA-Ret.), Army Historical Foundation’s Chairman.
“At that early stage, their commitment was a clear signal to the men and women in the U.S. Army that their service and sacrifice was deserving of a permanent place to call home. L-3’s most recent and generous gift is powerful reinforcement of their original commitment, and today, as we prepare to break ground for the Museum, we are indebted to them for it,” Sullivan added.
Headquartered in New York City, L-3 Communications is ranked a Top 10 Army contractor with more than $1.2B in FY15 Army revenue and $13B in Army revenue since FY08. Its divisions support aerospace, logistics, communication and electronic systems, and professional and support services for some of the Army’s most mission essential ground combat and aviation platforms.
“L-3 has long been a proud partner of the United States Army. Over the last 15 years, we have collaborated with its men and women to provide out equipment and expertise for use by the greatest soldiers in the world,” said Michael T. Strianese, L-3’s Chairman and CEO. “We are particularly pleased to continue our support of the National Museum of the United States Army so that past, present and future soldiers can visit and celebrate their contribution to the service’s distinguished legacy. We are honored that L-3’s people and products stand side by side with the Army in this newest chapter of I.S. Army history.”
L-3 Communications’ $1,000,000 increase places the company in the Capital Campaign’s Five-Star Circle of Distinction reserved for corporate and individual donors of $1,000,000 or more.
