About this Article

About 150 Northrop Grumman employees in Rolling Meadows prepared hundreds of care packages to send to overseas troops through the USO. When employees work on laser technology, "you really don't get many opportunities to say, 'Here is a finished product,'" said Evon Grant-Nixon, business manager of Northrop's Infrared Countermeasures division. "This brings it home a little more. It's something they can touch and feel."
