Washington, D.C. – United States President Barack Obama today thanked federal employees for their service, sacrifices and dedication.
In a White House speech today to mark the end of a government shutdown that sidelined hundreds of thousands of federal workers, the president said their service matters.
“Thanks for your service,” Obama said to federal workers. “Welcome back. What you do is important — it matters. You defend our country overseas. You deliver benefits to our troops who have earned them when they come home. You guard our borders. You protect our civil rights. You help businesses grow and gain footholds in overseas markets. You protect the air we breathe and the water our children drink. And you push the boundaries of science and space. And you guide hundreds of thousands of people each day through the glories of this country.” «Read the rest of this article»
