Message from the Acting Director for the Thanksgiving Holiday
Statement to Employees from Acting Director Michael Morell: Happy Thanksgiving
November 20, 2012
The Thanksgiving holiday gives us an opportunity to step back from the many demands of our work to reflect on and appreciate our families, our friends, and our freedom. I want to take this moment to thank all of you for your hard work, your focus on mission, and the many sacrifices you make, large and small, on behalf of your country.
We at CIA have always stood for service to our fellow citizens—doing our best for others is deeply rooted in who we are as Agency officers. In that same spirit of public service, we all have the opportunity to help people here at home and around the world through our Combined Federal Campaign. In this season of gratitude and giving, I hope you will consider contributing to the causes of your choice to carry that spirit of giving through the coming year.
Mary Beth and I, along with the senior leadership team, wish you and your families a happy and safe holiday. We extend our special thanks to those of you who will be working over the holiday or are separated from your families—you will be in our thoughts on Thursday.
