Heroes of Leidos: Dale

"My dad was an Army veteran and I had been a Cadet in the Civil Air Patrol prior to enlisting in the Air Force. With my love for country and interest in aviation, it made perfect sense to me — it was my way to 'pay it back.'

"I had more responsibility as a 22-year-old Staff Sergeant than most people experience in their lifetime. That sense of responsibility has served me well. I even spent two-and-a-half years on nuclear alert duty. Think Dr. Strangelove — it's not that far off!

"Veterans bring many diverse and unique experiences to the workforce. Give them the opportunity to put those experiences to work, and it's a win-win situation for all involved."
