OPM

Posted 1:00 PM by

As we gather with loved ones to celebrate the season, I want to wish our extended Federal family – employees, retirees, their families, and our customers a happy holiday.

Every day, Federal workers across this great country serve the American people in so many ways. They guard our borders, respond to natural disasters, protect our civil rights, and deliver benefits to citizens of all ages- from children to retirees. They help businesses grow and expand into new markets, push the very boundaries of science and space, and protect our natural wonders here on Earth.

Thank you to all the Federal workers for all that you do, and to my OPM colleagues who help agencies recruit, train, retain, and honor the employees who make it possible for the government to deliver on its mission.

While many of us will be fortunate enough to gather with friends and family in the coming weeks, I hope we all take a moment to honor and thank those who will spend this holiday season away from their loved ones. Our military as well as their civilian colleagues from across the federal government will be working to ensure national security around the globe. Civilian employees will be serving this nation in so many ways – from ensuring the safety of our airports and skies to tending to our wounded warriors to patrolling our National Parks.

As 2015 comes to a close, I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season and a prosperous 2016.
