STATEMENT: Director Pon Celebrates the Life of Senator John McCain

From OPM Director Jeff T.H. Pon:

The passing of Senator John McCain is a great loss for America. His military and public service demonstrated unparalleled devotion to and sacrifice on behalf of our country. May his conviction to serving the greater good and unwavering commitment to his fellow Americans continue to inspire us all.

My deepest sympathies go out to the McCain family during this difficult time.
