Sunday, November 1, 2015

Today marks two years since the tragic shooting death of Transportation Security Officer Gerardo I. Hernandez and the wounding of two other TSA employees and a passenger at Los Angeles International Airport.

Officer Hernandez joined TSA in 2010. He was a dedicated, outgoing and immensely respected employee as well as a devoted husband and father.

Please join us in a nationwide moment of silence at 9:20 a.m. Pacific Time (12:20 p.m. Eastern Time).

We honor him by remaining vigilant in our mission to ensure the security of the traveling public.
