Learn more about Natick Solider Systems!

By contributor,

From Senator Karen Spilka's Office:

For almost the past 60 years, the U.S. Army has conducted some of its most advanced research on soldier equipment at the Natick Soldier Systems Center (NSSC). This facility works tirelessly to protect our service men and women in combat and provide them with the best equipment in the world.

I am pleased to announce that over the coming weeks, there are two great events for residents to learn more about Natick Soldier Systems and its contributions to our communities in MetroWest, our state's economy, and the overall safety of our nation.
