What all these careers share in common is a respect for the law and its citizens, but also the responsibility to successfully carry out the agency mission, whether that is protecting our wildlife as a Refuge Officer or the ensuring that foreign diplomats are safe while traveling in the United States on official business at the Diplomatic Service.
