To the editor:

Across the country and in communities like those in Johnson County, government employees protect and serve our nation. To honor these workers and their service, May 5-11 has been designated as Public Service Recognition Week.

I want to personally express my support for the many active and retired federal workers in Johnson County.

Won’t you join me?

If you checked the weather forecast before going outside this morning, thank the federal employees at the National Weather Service who alert us to impending storms.

If your child played with a toy today, thank the federal employees at the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission who administer our toy safety standards.

If you travel to a national park this summer, thank the park rangers who help families create lifetime memories.

No travel plans? Here’s something you can do from your own front door. If you received your mail today, thank the U.S. Postal Service employees and the carrier who delivered it.

Many of the services on which Indiana relies are made possible by America’s federal workforce. We probably don’t realize all that our federal worker neighbors do for us, but I hope they know that we appreciate their service to our country.

Joyce Utterback

National Active and Retired Federal Employees,

Chapter 1612

Johnson County
