Roughly one in every five Leidos employees is a veteran. Their stories are meant to honor our Heroes and celebrate the commitment each of them made to serve at the highest level. Meet the Heroes of Leidos.
"I enlisted two weeks after Sept. 11, 2001, feeling an obligation to serve as a result of the events of that day. Being a veteran has made me realize the important things in life. As a medic in real-world life-and-death situations, both in Iraq and at Fort Hood, I realized there are many times in our lives that others may feel that a situation is an emergency — especially in the civilian workplace — and that I have to "triage" each situation and react/act appropriately. Having treated casualties from the U.S., foreign countries, and enemy insurgents, I am of the mindset that all lives are equal. Being a veteran means that a person has put the needs of the United States and the military branch they served in before their own. It means that you have experienced something in life that only other veterans understand and can relate to."
