Federal News Radio:   One of my favorite programs of the Partnership for Public Service is the Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medals, also known as the “Sammies.” Here is what the Partnership says about the Sammies:  “The Sammies, known as the ‘Oscars’ of government service, are a highly respected honor with a vigorous selection process. Named for the Partnership for Public Service’s late founder who was inspired by President Kennedy’s call to serve in 1963, these awards align with his vision of a dynamic and innovative federal workforce that meets the needs of the American people.
