Tuberville Honors Maggie Amadei of Enterprise as January “Veteran of the Month”

Tuberville’s Veteran of the Month series recognizes Alabama’s heroes for service to our military and local communities

WASHINGTON — U.S. Senator Tommy Tuberville (R-AL) today released a video honoring U.S. Army Captain Maggie Amadei of Enterprise as the January “Veteran of the Month.”

Excerpts from Senator Tuberville’s remarks can be found below, and his full remarks can be found here.

“Our men and women in uniform embody a special kind of courage. No one displays that better than Captain Maggie Amadei of Enterprise.”

“Not only is Maggie a combat veteran, but she is also a Gold Star Spouse. Maggie and her husband Ben met while both serving in the Army. They deployed as part of the 101st Airborne Division, and celebrated their 1st wedding anniversary while in Iraq. But two months after, Ben’s helicopter was shot down and he lost his life for this country. But this tragedy didn’t destroy Maggie’s desire to serve.”

“For 15 years, Maggie has helped provide over 1.5 million flight hours to pilots, making sure our pilots are ready. Every day, she helps ensure the next generation of Army aviators are prepared for whatever challenge comes next.”

“Maggie’s toughness, resilience, and her commitment to serve are an inspiration.”
