The bikes will be donated to the USO San Diego in a ceremony scheduled for
Dec. 4 at the BAE Systems offices in Rancho Bernardo, CA. The USO San Diego
will distribute the bikes to family members of the Navy, Marines and Coast
Guard in the San Diego area throughout the holiday season. Some of the bikes
will also be distributed to local families through the Wounded Warrior
Project.

“Our employees work closely with the military every day, and many of them have
also served our country,” said Jordan Becker, Vice President and General
Manager of BAE Systems GEOINT-ISR business. “We hope these bikes brighten the
holidays for families who have made tremendous sacrifices for all of us.”

BAE Systems employees in Liberty Station and Rancho Bernardo have been raising
money for the Annual USO Bike Drive throughout the year via direct payroll
deductions, personal contributions and fundraising events. Huffy® provided
discounts on the bicycles and tricycles, and Bell® offered the helmets at a
reduced cost for the effort.

BAE Systems employees started the bike drive in 1995. During the past 18
years, employees have raised funds to donate approximately 8,700 bicycles for
San Diego service members and their families. For more information about the
bike drive and the upcoming donation ceremony, please visit our website:
