Federal Workers Who Made a Difference
The federal government gets a bad rap: it is constantly described as bloated and clunky, its workers as inefficient and ineffectual.

Heyman Service to America Medals, or Sammies, have sought to change that by honoring federal employees who have an outsize impact on the country and the world. Below, the 2017 Sammie winners, chosen by the nonpartisan Partnership for Public Servic...
