At a time when federal employees face considerable personal and professional stresses in their lives, we must remind ourselves of how important the work of federal employees is to all of us.

On this Public Service Recognition Week, we want to thank all of our readers for their dedicated service, whether it is catching criminals, protecting us from hazardous products and transportation mishaps, discovering better medical treatments, caring for our veterans, or performing any of the innumerable important missions our government is charged with carrying out every day.

Why Do They Serve?

The vast array of work done by our federal public servants is more often than not unseen by the public, and, unfortunately, underappreciated. Hopefully, the PSRW activities happening across the country this week will provide the public a little more visibility into the extraordinary work our federal public servants do.

Here are just a few scenes of federal employees in action in the last year.
