47 years of incredible selfless service…

Today I had the honor of serving as the presiding official for a team member who is retiring from the government after 47 years of faithful and dedicated service. 47 years…

This particular teammate started in the business in her very early 20’s. She came to Washington on a whim and stayed for the next five decades.  

She worked and served in the national security space through dating her eventual husband, the birth of her children, America going to war several times, the attacks against the Pentagon on 9/11, and the wars that followed. In the last few years, she served with us as her first Grand Daughter was born.  

This incredible human absolutely loves people and loves serving. She is one of the most caring people one could ever serve with and I could not be more grateful for being able to honor you, even in the middle of COVID.

Congrats CR on your incredible career.  You gave it your all, and you made an incredible impact on everyone who ever had the joy of working with you – especially through the joy that you brought everyone who walked through our door each and every day.

Enjoy that Grand Baby!!
