Across the country and in communities like Perry County, government employees protect and serve our nation. To honor these workers and their service, May 5-11 has been designated as Public Service Recognition Week.
If you checked the weather forecast before going outside this morning, thank the federal employees at the National Weather Service who alert us to impending storms. If your child played with a toy today, thank the federal employees at the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission who administer our toy-safety standards. If you travel to a national park this summer, thank the park rangers who help families create lifetime memories.
No travel plans? Here’s something you can do from your own front door: If you received your mail today, thank the U.S. Postal Service carrier who delivered it. If you visit one of the national forest recreation areas in Perry County, thank the employees who care for them.
Many of the services on which Indiana relies are made possible by America’s federal workforce.
We probably don’t realize all that our federal worker neighbors do for us, but I hope they know that we appreciate their service to our country.
