It's not just a job...

For most feds, it really isn't just a job.

This case in point culled by Federal News Radio:

When asked, most feds rarely say they "work" someplace; they say they "serve." Today's reminder comes from retired NPS Midwest Regional Chief Ranger Bill Blake. On the day of his retirement, Blake was the speaker at his son's Federal Law Enforcement Training Center graduation ceremony, where Andy Blake received the top academic award. During the ceremony, Bill had the unique honor of transferring his law enforcement badge from father to son for Andy to wear proudly throughout his NPS law enforcement career.
