World Ranger Day 31 July!

With the unprecedented challenges facing the Corps this year, now more than ever, I want to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to you, as proud member of our Park Ranger community, for your dedication and service and for the vital role you play in accomplishing our agency's mission objectives. Today is "World Ranger Day" and a day to highlight your accomplishments and recognize your public service.

As designated by the International Ranger Federation (IRF), "World Ranger Day is celebrated worldwide on July 31st to commemorate rangers killed or injured in the line of duty and to celebrate the work rangers do to protect the planet's natural treasures and cultural heritage". I'd like to thank our Park Rangers and supporting staff for the great work accomplished each and every day to protect our missions, the natural resources and more than 250 million annual visitors. Information on IRF World Ranger Day can be found at http://www.internationalrangers.org/world-ranger-day.

USACE leadership is beyond proud of the conduct and dedication of our personnel in the field and cognizant of the many challenges you encounter each day that have increased in response to new operational changes that the current year has brought us. I ask that you continue to think safety first in your duties as we encourage the public to do the same. Remember that the USACE Critical Incident Stress Management Program (CISM) is available at any time when stress management is needed. CISM provides peer support and information on healthy life choices in response to stressful work environment incidents. More information can be found at https://corpslakes.erdc.dren. mil/employees/cism/cism.cfm

This year, the National Water Safety Program in cooperation with the Corps Foundation, has posted a World Ranger Day video on the National Water Safety Program's (Please Wear It) Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages to show appreciation for all that the USACE Park Rangers do to promote water safety and save lives. The video will showcase several USACE Park Rangers so you are encouraged to share the post with your friends and followers.
