DHS Serves: Gabriella Marino

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.

Veronica Cruz Chacon

My career goals center on doing meaningful work, and I joined DHS because all work in defense of our homeland is meaningful. As a contract specialist at DHS, I am proud to support our front line workers who put their lives and safety on the line each day. As we prepare to observe Independence Day, I am reminded of those who have given the ultimate sacrifice in defense of this great nation, and in so doing, have preserved our freedom and prosperity.
Gabriella Marino, DHS Management Directorate
