Tammy Duckworth Life

Ladda Duckworth (born March 12, 1968) is an American politician and former US Army lieutenant colonel who has served as the junior senator for Illinois since 2017.

From 2013 to 2017, she represented Illinois' 8th congressional district in the United States House of Representatives from 2013 to 2017.

She served as Assistant Secretary for Public and Intergovernmental Affairs in the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (2009–11) and Director of the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs before her re-election in 2006.

In 2016, Duckworth became the first female senator to vote in the Senate, becoming the first woman with a disability to be elected to Congress, the first female double amputee in Thailand, and the first woman to give birth while in office.

After Mazie Hirono and before Kamala Harris, Duckworth is the second Asian American woman to serve in the United States Senate, after Mazie Hirono and Kamala Harris. Duckworth, a Iraq war veteran, sustained serious combat wounds, causing her to lose both of her legs and some mobility in her right arm.

She was the first female double amputee from the war.

Despite her tragic injuries, she applied for and obtained a medical exemption, enabling her to serve as a lieutenant colonel in the Illinois Army National Guard alongside her husband, Major Bryan W. Bowlsbey, a signal officer and fellow Iraq War veteran.

Both of them have since been out of service.

Early life and education

Duckworth's daughter, Franklin Duckworth, and Lamai Sompornpairin, was born in Bangkok, Thailand. Duckworth, although she was born outside the United States, is a natural-born citizen due to her father's status as an American citizen. Her father, a soldier of the United States Army and the United States Marine Corps, traced his family's roots to the American Revolutionary War. Her mother is a Thai Chinese woman and hails from Chiang Mai. Her father worked with the United Nations and international companies in refugee, housing, and development services, and her family migrated around Southeast Asia. In comparison to English, duckworth became fluent in Thailand and Indonesian.

Duckworth attended the Singapore American School, the International School Bangkok, and the Jakarta International School. Duckworth was 16 years old when she arrived in Honolulu, Hawaii, where she studied track and field and graduated in 1985. Duckworth skipped half of her ninth grade year and half of her tenth grade due to a difference in the grade levels between the school systems she attended. She was a Girl Scout and she received her First Class, which now is referred to as the Gold Award. Her father was unemployed for a while, and the family was dependent on public services. She graduated from the University of Hawaii in 1989 with a Bachelor of Arts in political science. She earned a Master of Arts in international affairs from George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs in 1992. She began a PhD program at Northern Illinois University, but her war service was interrupted. In March 2015, she earned a PhD in human services at Capella University.

Personal life

Since 1993, Duckworth has been married to Bryan Bowlsbey. They met during Duckworth's time in the Reserve Officers' Training Corps and then served in the Illinois Army National Guard together. Bowlsbey, a Signal Corps officer, is also a veteran of the Iraq War. Both officers have since been released from service.

Abigail, who was born in 2014, and Maile born in 2018. Duckworth became the first senator in the United States to give birth while in office due to Maile's birth. Daniel Akaka, a former senator, aided the couple in the naming of both daughters; Akaka died on April 6, 2018, three days before Maile was born; Senators were allowed to breastfeed on the Senate floor right after Maile's birth. Duckworth had earlier introduced the bipartisan Friendly Airports for Mothers (FAM) Act to ensure that new mothers have access to safe, clean, and accessible lactation rooms in airports. Duckworth carried Maile with her during a Senate vote, making Duckworth the first senator to vote while holding a baby the day after the rule was changed.

Duckworth was instrumental in the establishment of the Intrepid Foundation to assist injured veterans.


After admitting to slimmer passengers will pay the bill, plus size travel influencer Jaelynn Chaney says she's working with a USSENATOR to try and get fat flyers free extra plane seats

www.dailymail.co.uk, December 16, 2023
Jaelynn Chaney, a 25-year-old plus-size influencer, appeared on TikTok video that she had been meeting with a prominent US Senator's staff. She is requesting that overweight flyers be given as many free seats as they can fly safely. Chaney said she wasn't know who would fund the costs of the proposals, but that the changes were worth it. This week, Southwest Airlines released a new policy allowing obese passengers to get free extra seats

Following the deaths of 900 Israelis, including a Chicago student, 18, who was one of the first victims, Hamas chief warns in a recently released video that the Israelis were only the first victims

www.dailymail.co.uk, October 10, 2023
Mahmoud al-Zahar, a Hamas leader, revealed in December that the terror group intended to control a far greater area than Israel. Israel launched strikes on Gaza on Monday night as a result of the attack earlier this weekend. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced in the early hours of Tuesday that they had'more or less' regained complete control of their boundary fence with Gaza after Hamas attackers broke through it on Saturday. With airstrikes overnight, the Israeli Air Force claimed to have struck 200 Hamas and other terrorist groups in Gaza.

Sen. Tammy Duckworth says that Tuberville is refusing military promotions, and that it's 'beyond disgusting' that it is being blocked

www.dailymail.co.uk, July 16, 2023
Sen. Tammy Duckworth is the latest Democrat to criticize Republican Sen. Tommy Tuberville's decision to refuse military promotions and nominations in reaction to the Pentagon's refusal to reimburse abortions. Duckworth, a former Army National Guard lieutenant colonel who lost her legs in Iraq in 2004, was exacerbated as she said that Sen. Tuberville's stunt, she believes, is jeopardizing US national security. In a Sunday morning interview with NBC's Meet the Press program, Senator Ted Kennedy said that injecting politics into the defense process is not jeopardizing national security.'
