Capt. Barbenoir, the Agency realizes you are a Navy veteran and a double amputee, and as such we readily agreed that a lower workstation is a Reasonable Accomodation under Secton 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

In addition, Physical Security wants to know how in God's Name you managed to get that cutlass past the X-ray and magnetometer screening at the building entrance!
