Families of CIA

Officers working for the Central Intelligence Agency experience a workplace unlike any other.

The challenges they face are unparalleled. Their work is demanding, their adversary never sleeps, and the stakes for national security continue to climb. Agency officers recognize the toll this line of work can place on their mental and physical well-being, but also recognize that it isn’t a burden they carry alone.

Agency families stand by our officers through thick and thin, through success and turmoil, through late nights and far-off deployments – they truly experience the effects of our profession firsthand. They are as much a part of the CIA family as the officers who walk our halls, and this summer, we’d like to honor them with the thank you they deserve.

Our new social media series, “Families of CIA,” will highlight the invaluable role that families play in support of the Agency, its mission, and its people. Throughout the summer, we will feature the spouses of Agency leaders past-and-present, significant others of those officers working on the frontlines for national security, and children who followed in their parents footsteps and chose to serve.

It is no exaggeration to say that, without the love and support of our families, our mission could not be accomplished. In an address to CIA families in 2019, D/CIA Gina Haspel asserted; “you may not possess a security clearance, but you play an indispensable supporting role at our Agency. We simply couldn’t do what we do without your patience and understanding, and CIA is far more effective because of your support.”

To all CIA families, thank you.

You can follow along weekly with the #FamiliesofCIA series on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
