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.
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.
