Military & Veteran Support

At Leonardo DRS, providing the military with innovative technology, products, and solutions is the core of our business. We give back to the military community by contributing to military service organizations that provide direct support and services to military families. Some of our recipients include the USO, the Armed Services YMCA, and the Fisher House which provides housing and transportation for families to visit wounded members of the military. The Leonardo DRS Guardian Scholarship Fund provides college tuition for the children of service men and women killed in action. We have worked with Habitat for Humanity to build homes for veterans. We are also a proud sponsor of the Army Ten-Miler for the past ten years.

Our employees support the military community by donating goods, services, monetary contributions, and organize and participate in many worth causes across the country and overseas.

Veteran Workforce

At Leonardo DRS our veterans and reservists have been vital members of the DRS team since our inception in 1969 – they are important to our success. In 2020, we were recognized as a ‘Best for Vets’ employer by Military Times. We proudly employ veterans, whose skills and experience have helped shape us into a leading defense contractor.

“Our veterans embody a tradition of service and set the example for all of us to model here at DRS. We are especially proud of our fellow workmates who are veterans. Whether in business development, on the manufacturing line, engineering innovative solutions to protect their successors on the battlefield, or supporting our warfighters in some other way, they give it their very best on the job.” – Bill Lynn, CEO

We honor our military and consider ourselves fortunate to have so many veterans in our workforce.

Best for Vets Award

Leonardo DRS is proud to announce that we have once again, made the Military Times Best for Vets: Employers List.

Best for Vets is a sought-after distinction in which the Military Times publication recognizes organizations for their programs and policies that support veterans’ post-military careers.

This is an important designation for us because it lets us know we are doing the right thing to attract and keep the valuable talent that veterans bring to this company.

Veterans interested in working for Leonardo DRS can see our current opportunities.

We encourage everyone to take a moment from their day and reach out and thank these heroes for what they have done to contribute to our freedom and prosperity.

Thank you for your service and sacrifice.
