TranscriptHi everybody. As we all gear up to spend Thanksgiving with family and friends, or even take some time for quiet reflection, I just want to say that this is one of my favorite times of the year. It's an opportunity for me to think about what I'm thankful for. And one of the things I'm very thankful for is the opportunity that the President gave me to work alongside you at the Department of the Interior.
You know it's not been an easy time, with continuing resolutions and sequestration and budget cuts and and all of that. But I am so thankful for the work that you do, your commitment to mission, and the way you're doing the best job you can to serve the American people, no matter what the mission is of your bureau, or the Department overall that you serve.
So I just want to thank all of you for everything that you've done, I wish you a great Thanksgiving with family and friends, and hope that as we gear up toward the holiday season, we're going to also gear up for a new year of success and support for the very very important work that you all do. Thank you.
