 Mr. SANDERS. Mr. President, on April 27, 2018, the Vermont 
Federal Executive Association recognized several Federal employees in 
the State of Vermont with Excellence in Government awards. At a time 
when many Federal agencies are being asked to do more work with fewer 
resources, it is important to recognize examples of exceptionally good 
work by members of the Federal workforce.
  Vermont is fortunate to have close to 5,000 Federal employees working 
across the State, and I am proud of their commitment to public service. 
I would like to congratulate the 2018 Excellence in Government award 
winners who were chosen for this recognition by their peers in VTFEA.
  The awards are as follows: Supervisor of the Year, Amanda Duquette, 
Office of Contracting, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services; 
Employee of the Year, Caitlin Moynihan, Homeland Security 
Investigations, Burlington Field Office, U.S. Immigration and Customs 
Enforcement; Excellence in Mission Support, Staffing Management Team, 
Northeast Regional Office, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services; 
Excellence in Operational Execution, Targeted Enforcement Unit/Sensor 
Team, U.S. Border Patrol, Newport Station, U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection and the FEMA Adjudication Team, Personnel Security, 
Operations, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services; Safety/Valor 
Award, Laurent Giroux, U.S. Customs and Border Protection and John 
Zavala, U.S. Border Patrol; and Unit Excellence, Operations Unit 
Mentoring Team, Law Enforcement Support Center, U.S. Immigration and 
Customs Enforcement.
  Once again, I congratulate these Vermont Federal employees for 
receiving these awards.
