Honoring King County employees who continue to serve our community

This weekend, we will pay tribute to those who served our country in uniform. Veterans Day allows each of us a chance to reflect on the sacrifices these men and women made to keep our nation safe and free. No matter where or when they served, we all owe a debt to our military veterans. 

As a small token of appreciation, throughout this month King County managers and supervisors will present a special “Veterans” pin to employees who served or are serving in the U.S. armed forces, active duty or reserve. We appreciate the leadership and perspectives that veterans bring to our workforce, and we appreciate their continued willingness to serve the public. The pin is circular, in bronzed nickel, includes the King County logo and has “Veteran” written on it. We hope every King County veteran wears the pin proudly. 

If you served or are currently serving in the US armed forces and did not receive a pin during the month of November, please inquire with your supervisor about obtaining one.   

We also encourage all employees who are veterans and reservists to update their PeopleSoft information to include their military status. To do so, login into PeopleSoft, click “Personal Details,” and then “Military Status” to verify that your military status is accurately listed in the system.
