Today, public servants are more vital to our nation’s health than ever. They are on the frontlines guarding our national security, shoring up the economy, caring for veterans and providing essential services to the American people.

That’s why during this year’s Public Service Recognition Week, we urge you to take a moment to reflect on the importance of these unsung heroes and thank the men and women who serve our nation as government employees. At the Partnership, we are proud to take the occasion of Public Service Recognition Week, designated by Congress and organized by the Public Employees Roundtable, to extend our sincere gratitude to all of those who work on our behalf.

We hope you will join us this week in giving your support and thanks to our dedicated public servants who give so much to our country.
