The men and women serving in our operational Components are the experts in their national security and homeland security missions, making their insights critical in threat identification and prevention. Our operational Components provided information about the threats they see and combat in performance of their mission. DHS is the first and last line of defense against many threats facing our country.
Our ability to mitigate these threats is predicated on our ability to understand them and to inform the American people. I hope all Americans take a moment to review this HTA and visit DHS.gov to learn how they can protect themselves from these threats.
