Today, and every day, tens of thousands of you are working across the nation and around the globe to keep our leaders informed and your fellow Americans safe. You do not trumpet your achievements from the rooftops. There are no public accolades for the terror plots that you disrupt, for the drug cartels you help to take down, and the vital political information that you uncover. There are no welcome home ceremonies and parades with high school bands and local officials when you return from duty overseas. And when you lose a colleague, you grieve in private.
