Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano on Tuesday afternoon thanked TSA workers for their vigilance and hard work.

with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) have come under
fire recently for implementing a series of controversial screening
techniques, which include advanced body-imaging systems and pat-downs.

In a letter to TSA employees on Tuesday, a day before one of the
busiest travel days in the country, Napolitano acknowledged the
hardships of their job and said that the country was counting on them to
keep it safe.

“Time and again, the men and women of TSA have demonstrated poise
and professionalism,” said Napolitano in the letter. “Travelers and the
public realize that your job is difficult and demanding. This holiday
season, I am confident you will again demonstrate your commitment to
ensuring the safety of the traveling public to everyone who passes
through an airport security checkpoint.”
