Attention to detail, technical expertise and dedication to her job earned a U.S. Army Recruiting Command logistics management specialist recognition from the Department of the Army.
AnnMarie Claycamp worked with 50 brigade and battalion fleet managers to complete the requisition of nearly 2,000 replacement vehicles for the command for 2017.
Martin Brown, an official with the DA's transportation program, called attention to Claycamp's "superb work performance" regarding her role in ordering new government-owned vehicles for the command as part of the Non-Tactical Vehicle Replacement Cycle.
Brown noted that not only was USAREC the first command in the Army to finish the annual task, but also the command submitted the order without error.
Wanda Jenkins, USAREC command logistics division chief, said this is quite an accomplishment and has submitted Claycamp to receive the Achievement Medal for Civilian Service for her work.
"This is the first time we've received a note back from a (Department of the Army) program manager saying there were zero errors, so it was a perfect submission," Jenkins said.
"I know for a fact she stayed on the phones for hours talking back and forth asking questions. She has to look at every single vehicle and approve it," Jenkins said. "She has to make sure the (fleet managers) don't ask for things that are not approved. She's got to go in and validate all that information and make sure all the fields are correct before she approves anything that goes up to DA."
Claycamp, a USAREC employee since 1994, said this recognition moved her to tears.
"Being recognized for my work means much more to me than anybody will ever know, because what we do here, recruiting for the Army, is an important thing," Claycamp said. "I take what I do seriously. I love the Army. I love working for USAREC. I care about the Soldiers and the people I work with. I put every bit of my energy into what I do."
