Honoring Our Veterans
Honoring our veterans
On this Veterans Day, we honor all those who wore the uniform and served to protect our nation. The dedication and sacrifices that our military servicemembers and their families have made and continue to make are appreciated on this day, and every day.
More than 7,200 Leidos employees — 22 percent of our workforce — are Veterans. Since the beginning of the year, we have hired 1,700 Veterans as part of Operation MVP, our companywide outreach program to hire, train, and support veterans in the workforce. The expertise and leadership these colleagues bring to our company is critical to our mission of making the world safer, healthier, and more efficient. Many of us also have the honor of working side by side with active duty servicemembers through the important work we do each day, which is something to be proud of.
Our annual Veterans Day campaign, Heroes of Leidos, gives a public voice to men and women in our company who wore the uniform. I hope you take some time to learn about some of their stories and reflect on their unique experiences. Our colleagues abroad are reflecting on those who made the ultimate sacrifice with Remembrance Day observances, and I ask that you keep them in mind, too. We owe a debt of gratitude to those who have served our allied nations, particularly those who fell in the line of duty.
To all those who honorably served, thank you.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
