Heroes of Leidos: Amanda
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 was flying over Iraq with my squadron commander when we received orders to support ground forces near Sadr City. One of the vehicles in the convoy broke down, and they were in a dangerous place. We flew half a dozen shows of force at about 100 feet. I can only imagine how loud the jets were from such a low altitude. Our troops were able to fix the disabled vehicle and continue the convoy safely out of the city. I like to think the two Strike Eagles flying overhead in full afterburner helped them return home unharmed. After spending hundreds of hours on training flights, it was rewarding to know that I could make a difference."
