Members Of KSC Workforce Defend Country Abroad
Over 50 members of the Kennedy Space Center workforce have been called to active duty to protect America overseas. The servicemen and women represent many different divisions and employers at KSC, including NASA, United Space Alliance, Boeing, Space Gateway Support, as well as other NASA contractors.

Thirty-one KSC employees have been called to active duty in the Air Force, while 11 are currently serving in the US Army. The Coast Guard and Navy have both called 3 members of KSC’s workforce into service.

"We will miss the dedicated and professional service provided by these members of the KSC family, but respect their patriotism and wish them God's Speed as they leave home to serve our Country," said KSC Deputy director James Kennedy.

The Kennedy Space Center Family extends their respect and appreciation for the great personal sacrifice made by all men and women fighting for freedom abroad.
