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.
Because of the devastation that our country suffered on September 11, we felt the need to continue serving and protecting this country after our military careers ended – and what better way to continue our service than to join U.S. Customs and Border Protection! As we reflect on the nation’s celebration of our independence, we are proud that we have the opportunity to train the finest officer candidates who will defend America’s frontline. – Ivette and Anthony Maniece, Supervisory CBPOs (and spouses) U.S. Customs & Border Protection
