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 graduated during a drawdown year and had plans to be an accountant in Washington, DC. A year later, I was leading 36 paratroopers in Central Africa. It was a humanitarian mission following the genocide in 1994. Even historians forget there were U.S. troops in both Rwanda and Zaire at the time, and the violence and suffering were horrific. You try to look at those experiences in a positive light. We are so fortunate to be Americans, and I will never have a bad day. I think that my fellow veterans share a similar outlook. We should all be grateful for what we have, work hard, and take advantage of every opportunity."
