As we approach Independence Day, DHS will be highlighting the dedicated service to our nation of employees from across the Department. Check this page throughout the week for first-hand accounts from employees who have shared why they serve.
I take pride in knowing that I’m serving my country two-fold. Working for the Federal Protective Service allows me to continue to protect and serve by helping safeguard federal employees, contractors, and civilian visitors in federal facilities, all while I continue to serve in the Marine Corps with over 20 years of active duty and reserve time. I love this nation and what it stands for, and my career allows me to continue to do my part as a true patriot. – Kevin Rankin, Inspector, Federal Protective Service (FPS)
