Ladda Tammy Duckworth is the US Representative-elect for Illinois's 8th congressional district. She previously served as Assistant Secretary for Public & Intergovernmental Affairs in the US Department of Veterans Affairs, and as Director of the #Illinois Department of #Veterans Affairs. Duckworth, an Iraq War veteran, served as a helicopter pilot and suffered severe combat wounds, losing both legs and damaging her right arm. She continues to serve as a Lieutenant Colonel along with her husband.
Should Duckworth win, she would be the first-ever woman injured in combat to be elected to national office. The 44-year-old trilingual daughter of a Marine and a Thai immigrant represents: the changing face of America, a potential leader for the rights of women and immigrants, and a champion of assistance to the poor, jobless, and disabled. "She could play a key role nationally like no one else," says Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill.), one of her political mentors.
