“Dear Park Service Rangers....”
Your cushy job is about to become a living hell - we’ve always been especially nice to Park Servivce personnel - that is gonna’ end.
The National Park Service Ranger that most people are used to dealing with is sitting around furloughed right now. They are not the people who are writing tickets or blocking access. The staff on duty now are mostly “Protection Rangers”...basically they are the Federal police that work for NPS.
I know quite a few NPS personnel who are not “protection” rangers and most of them would like nothing more than to have the parks open for visitors but they aren’t allowed to work right now.
Well, then maybe they should stand with us, in uniform, and protest or do they care about their jobs more than their country?
If so that’s quite selfish.
