The 7,000-square-foot Patriots' Outpost and adjacent patio area will be located at the Honda Classic's 17 th hole, and will be open Feb. 27 - March 2 to all active-duty and reserve service members, military retirees, veterans and their dependents who have valid dependent identification.

The Patriots' Outpost, which will be open from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Feb. 27-28, and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on March 1-2, will serve complimentary lunch, snacks and beverages to guests.

"Sikorsky is proud to sponsor the Patriots' Outpost at The Honda Classic for the second consecutive year. It is our way to pay tribute to our military personnel, past and present, for their service to our country," said Scott Starrett, Sikorsky vice president, Government Business Development.

"We look forward to welcoming local veterans and other military service men and women to the Patriot's Outpost, and personally expressing our gratitude," said Starrett.  

"Along with Sikorsky, Pratt & Whitney is a proud member of the West Palm Beach community helping to bring the Patriots' Outpost to the 2014 Honda Classic for the brave men and women who have and are currently serving our great nation," said Mike O'Neill, Pratt & Whitney West Palm Beach general manager.

More than 30 percent of the combined workforce at the local Pratt & Whitney and Sikorsky Aircraft facilities in West Palm Beach is active duty reservists or veterans. United Technologies employs nearly 10,000 U.S. veterans and current members of the National Guard and Army Reserve. 

During the Honda Classic, Sikorsky Aircraft will display the X2 TECHNOLOGYâ„¢ Demonstrator which has flown at twice the speed of today's conventional helicopters. Pratt & Whitney will share a display highlighting the F135 engine that is currently being produced for the F-35 Lightning II.
