Heroes of Leidos: Rebecca
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.
"Patriotic duty and family tradition led me to the Army. Service provided me with stability and focus, putting me on a technical career path that's allowed me to continue my service to community and country. I was recently honored by Maryland as its inaugural Veterans winner of the Governor's Service Award. Years of work around the world helped me win this coveted award. A few years ago, I was accepted into a White House public service leadership program and had the opportunity to lead a service project for the First Lady. There is one line of hers from that experience that remains with me: "As you come up in the world, make sure you bring someone up with you." I think it's very inspiring and rings true no matter who you are, where you are or what line of work you're in. I have experiences that cannot be gained as a civilian, and access to a community of veterans that support each other. We always look out for one another. Never underestimate what a veteran can bring to the table. We often have a plethora of applicable skills to bring to the workforce!"
