Thank You to All Veterans

Springerville, AZ--Date – There are approximately 4,818 veterans working for the Forest Service nationwide. Fifty of those veterans work here on the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests. They work in many different fields throughout the forests, including administration, fire, timber, engineering, range, finance, contracting, biologist in numerous fields and many other occupations.

They have served in the Air Force, Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and National Guard.  They have specialized in mechanics, artillery, intelligence, airmen, infantry, engineering, and many other fields. They were deployed to Iran, Afghanistan, Korea, Syria, Iraq and many other countries where dangerous missions were conducted. Some spent years overseas, away from home supporting the military efforts around the world.

These courageous, dedicated, patriotic men and women deserve our gratitude and appreciation. We want to thank each and every one of them for their sacrifices and stepping up to do a job others may be reluctant to accept. We are proud to have you working on the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests, and we are proud to call you our co-workers. THANK YOU!
