Since its launch, the women and men of ATF combatted violent crime both domestically and internationally to keep this country safe. A significant part of ATF’s success is due to those who overcame obstacles in the pursuit of public service. Quite a number endured many difficult challenges, leading a select few to rise above those circumstances to become trailblazers.
ATF trailblazers regularly display courage and diligence to enact their groundbreaking milestones in law enforcement while excelling in their daily operations.
