I am very excited to share the first edition of the Soldier Story Saturday series! I have great respect for all soldiers and their families but this soldier in particular holds a special place in my heart. Amee is my sister (in-law) and she continuously amazes me with her commitment to her family, her friends, her job and her country. Her story was written by her proud husband, Wayne Bergmann, as a surprise! Wayne & Amee have been married for just over a year now and their love for each other and their family is worthy of a story of its own. Here is MSgt Amee Jo Bergmann’s story.
MSgt Amee Jo Bergmann is stationed at Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton Ohio and has been proudly serving her county for over 19 years. She is a devoted mother to two of her own children and to her four step children but she would tell you they are all hers, no “step” involved. Amee is at the top of her career field in the Air Force, which is HARM or Host Aviation Resource Management. Amee is an E-7 or Master Sargent in the Air Force having worked very hard to achieve the stature and reputation she holds. She mentors the Airmen under her while holding them to the high standards that not only the Air Force requires, but those that she requires of herself. Never cutting corners just to make things fit, Amee puts in tremendous hours at her work and she is finishing her Masters of Education degree on top of everything else. Amee has held not only the position of superintendent of the 88th OSS/OSO squadron at Wright Patterson AFB but, has been a First Sgt as extra duty.
Amee, like all Airmen, started her journey at Lackland AFB in San Antonio Texas. After boot camp Amee’s will power to do the best at what ever she is tasked to do became evident. Amee was awarded the 2004 Aviation Resource Management Instructor of the year while at Dyess AFB serving at the 436th training squadron. She has been awarded countless quarterly awards for her performance as a Senior NCO Non-Commissioned Officer as well as awards for performance in her career field. Amee prides herself on being the best soldier she can be, from keeping herself physically fit and battle ready, to wearing the uniform of the USAF with pride. She has held station in such places as Japan (two deployments), Korea (two deployments), Kuwait in dessert storm (two deployments), Guam, Italy, Afghanistan and many duty assignments in the United States as well, Regardless of where she is stationed she always serves with pride in her country .
Amee Jo Bergmann is an amazing soldier who gives 110 percent of herself to serving her country. She is an accomplished scholar about to achieve a Master’s Degree in Education. She is a devoted wife and a loving caring mother. And she is a cherished sister to 7 siblings.
Thank you, Master Sergeant Amee Jo Bergmann for you dedication and sacrifice to your country! Freedom isn’t free, people like you pay the price for all of us to be free and for that we thank you!
