SUBJ/PUBLIC SERVICE 2020//

RMKS/1.  In the past few weeks, I have been reminded of the incredible talent 
and commitment to service from the Department of the Navys (DONs) civilian 
employees.  Each and every day, there are more than 200,000 men and women in 
about 500 different civilian occupations around the globe, performing 
valuable work to advance our mission and protect our nations freedoms 
alongside our Sailors and Marines.  Amid an unparalleled event in our 
lifetime, your dedication to serving the public good and our Navy-Marine 
Corps team remains the constant that steadies the storm.  You care.

2.  This week, some of you will be working from home in make-shift offices, 
others are in the field, shipyards, and depots operating under new safety 
measures, and some are recuperating or caring for those recuperating from the 
virus.  Despite the challenges and obstacles, you continue to develop new 
solutions for improving our services, maintaining our equipment and 
infrastructure, and supporting our Navy- Marine Corps team.

3.  You are an extraordinary group of men and women who took an oath of 
service to our country and its people.  I truly admire your tenacity and 
unwavering commitment to service and the valuable work you perform.  As we 
begin Public Service Week (May 3-9), I want to take this opportunity to 
recognize the valuable work executed by the DONs civilian employees and 
express gratitude for your admirable service.

4.  Released by the Honorable James E. McPherson, Acting Secretary of the 
Navy.//
