Events will kick off Monday through Sept. 19 at several areas in the National Capital Region, Leidos said Tuesday.

“We’re proud to partner with D.C. United to host inclusive and fun events for members of the military, veterans, and their families,” said Roger Krone, chairman and CEO of Leidos and an inductee into Executive Mosaic‘s Wash100 list for 2015.

“We are committed to supporting our men and women in uniform, and owe them our gratitude for everything they do to keep our nation safe.”
