Awarding and tracking $2.9 billion is a tough job. Providing thousands of jobs to help preserve our country's public lands isn't an easy task either. Mary Pletcher is the Deputy Recovery Coordinator and Acting Deputy Director at the National Business Center at the Department of the Interior's Office of Policy, Management and Budget. She excelled at those duties and that work made Pletcher a Service to America Medal finalist in the Call to Service category.
