To the Employees of the Federal Government

I am pleased to send my warmest greetings to all Federal employees and your families this holiday season.

America depends on thousands of Federal employees who help keep this country strong and ensure that our government functions effectively. Since September 11, Americans have been counting on the United States government to protect them.  During these extraordinary times, Federal employees have acted with professionalism and purpose in serving the American people. Now more than ever your Federal service is appreciated. 

Laura joins me in thanking you and wishing you health and happiness during this time of the year.  May God bless and protect you, and may God bless America.
