To the Editor:  A Note of Gratitude on cusp
of Public Service Recognition Week

During the past year, federal employees nationwide and 12,898 active federal and U.S Postal workers of Montana have dedicated themselves to keeping our country running while weathering a global pandemic.

They continue to provide essential financial services, processing
stimulus payments, tax refunds, small business loans, Social Security checks, mortgages, and student loans to keep the economy churning and households operating.

As they do every day, they have kept us safe, tracking cyber threats,
protecting the food supply, and alerting Americans to treacherous weather conditions, among other critical and life-saving tasks.

Many were on the front lines, risking their own health to serve the American people. The pandemic took a heavy toll on these public servants: countless workers were sickened while at work, and thousands died as a result.

And while many Feds could work remotely, they put in hours around the clock, often while struggling to care for their families, like so many Americans.

Throughout the year, but especially during  this—Public Service
Recognition Week, May 2-8—Americans should express our thanks for these hard-working public servants who make the everyday and
extraordinary possible.

I offer them my sincere appreciation.
