Heroes of Leidos: Dean
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 believe that everyone could benefit from serving in the military or something like the Peace Corps before college. The first thing that comes to mind from my time in the Navy is the people — broad backgrounds coming together, focusing on a mission, and taking care of each other. The chief engineer of the USS Groton was an inspiration of mine during my service. He said that only 2% of people who say they are going to college after the Navy, actually do so. He was a 'mustang,' meaning that he had been enlisted and then went to college and became an officer. I saw his words as a challenge to me to do it. Veterans put their lives on the line so we can have the freedoms we have. They need to be taken care of if they are not able — we all owe them, every day."
