The State of Maryland put out is report showing that the state is tenth in receiving Federal defense funds. writes about it here.  Maryland is of course helped by the large number of facilities in the state as the Army has Fort Meade, Fort Detrick and Aberdeen Proving Ground.  The Navy obviously has the Naval Academy as well as Patuxent River Naval Air Station.  The Air Force operates Andrews Air Force Base home of Air Force One for Presidential Transport.

The last round of BRAC will also see some movement to Maryland from other states. Fort Meade is consolidating some of the Army offices located in the Washington DC area in leased space. Paxtuxent River will also get some more aviation test assets.
