Public Service Recognition Week
Since 1985, the first full week of May has been set aside as Public Service Recognition Week (PSRW) to honor the men and women who serve our nation as federal, state, county, and local government employees. It provides a fitting time to not only celebrate the contributions of National Archives staff but also contributions of the entire federal workforce now—and throughout history.
