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.
"On my son's fourth birthday in 1989, I was falling out of a C-141 jet with over 200 pounds of equipment strapped to my body. The enemy was shooting at me and my parachute as I fell 490 feet. Within 9 seconds, I was on the ground with my closest Ranger buddies securing Torrijos/Tocumen Airfield. Two weeks later, we captured Manuel Noriega. I'll never forget the invasion of Panama. My proudest moment as a veteran came when I was in Afghanistan. My son Dan told me he was enrolling in ROTC at Norwich University. He wanted to serve like me, except his plan was to be an infantryman, unlike his 'MI weenie' dad. He was making important decisions in life, without his dad. Between the two of us, we have four Bronze Stars and over four years deployed in combat zones. He is still serving our nation and Army at war today."
