All your hard work and devotion finally pays off when it comes to glory.  You got into this gig because you want to serve and protect your country, and you are providing a valuable service to that end. You're not on the front lines fighting on the battlefield (although the dangers are similar), but you are risking your life and bringing a unique set of skills to the table. When you get that one vital nugget of info that helps your country track down a terrorist, you will have never experienced such a glorious feeling. Just too bad you won't be able to brag about it to anyone other than your pet parrot. (And if he snitches, he's dead bird meat.)
