9/11: A Government Changed
The Sept. 11 terrorist attacks forced the government to transform. The change has been both subtle and dramatic, encompassing everything from building security, to computer security, to how agencies hire and perform background checks. In the 10 years since that fateful day, the government also has created new things, including an entire agency. But maybe the biggest change has been the influx of federal employees inspired to serve. Federal News Radio evaluates the impact these changes have made on how the government meets this crucial mission and on the employees and contractors who are called upon daily to protect the homeland.
OPM honors feds who died on 9/11
Friday - 9/9/2011, 6:39pm EDT
The Office of Personnel Management today remembered those who died in the attacks in New York and the Pentagon.
"The aftermath of 9/11 was a moment of unity for Americans and for that great reach of humanity that believes, as we believe, in tolerance of all people and respect for human dignity," said OPM Director John Berry today during a ceremony remembering and honoring those federal employees who died 10 years ago. "We gather today to reaffirm those values. We've reorganized our government to keep our country and our world safe for those values. And we are thankful for the men and women in uniform and all federal civilians who keep us safe-intelligence agents, law enforcement officers, prosecutors, TSA officers and the family of staffers who support them, human resources, IT, accounting and many others."
More than 150 people gathered in the lobby of OPM for a minute of silence to honor those employees who paid the ultimate price. Following Berry's remarks, Shonna James, from the Department of Homeland Security, sang God Bless America. OPM broadcasted the ceremony live to all of its field offices.
