The United States Secret Service (or simply Secret Service) is a United States federal law enforcement agency operating under the Department of the Treasury.[2]


Founded in 1865, shortly after the American Civil War, as part of the federal Department of the Treasury to combat the widespread counterfeiting of the U.S. Dollar, the Secret Service later became the de facto federal police force alongside the United States Marshals Service until the creation of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.[3]

Shortly before the Great War, the United States government quietly removed the gold bullion from Fort Knox to a new installation in Appalachia, Vault 79. By removing the gold from the well-known Fort Knox, the intent was to assist the re-establishment of government by ensuring that the federal reserve would be hidden from Chinese nuclear strikes and survive for use by members of the federal government. The Secret Service was placed in charge of protecting the vault and its gold reserves, alongside members of the United States Armed Forces, with Derek Garrison acting as the agent in charge.

    Derek Garrison: "We're what's left of the Secret Service. As part of the Treasury Department, we look after the nation's currency, as well as protecting it'sIn-game spelling leaders. When it looked like everything was going sideways, the government ordered all the gold reserves moved to Vault 79. We were put here to protect it. From people like you to be honest."
