This week, VA joins the nation in celebrating Public Service Recognition Week, a federal observance recognizing the value of public service, and honoring the men and women who serve the public at the federal, state, county, and local level.

I count myself fortunate to have spent most of my life in public service and I hope you feel the same way about serving Veterans.

You have the most inspiring mission in the federal government — to care for those “who shall have borne the battle.”  And in the past few years, you’ve made amazing progress in improving Veterans’ care and services.

This week, we will be recognizing your past achievements as well as your continued commitment to public service at events all across the country.

It’s an occasion for VA leaders and coworkers at all levels to acknowledge the importance of our work and the significance of our contributions.

I am sincerely grateful for your service to America’s Veterans, and I am honored to serve alongside you.

Thank you, and God bless all who serve.

    I am an attorney who has applied to numerous Attorney Advisor positions. I am not complaining, I just want to find work. I also have a serious dental problem, that I have already paid $5000.00, ( for 5 implants, but no teeth just the holes in my mouth). I would be very grateful if I could get someone to help me just apply for a position, I believe that I am providing the exact answers the attorneys/ human resource people are looking to read in my application. Please help me, my teeth are really in horrible need of repair. I can’t eat. Thank You, Andre DeGarza, Attorney at Law
