Mrs. Teri Maude will be in Charlotte for the festivities. LTG Maude’s daughters, Karen and Kathleen, will be in Indianapolis (their 30th Indy race together) doing photos with the Ganassi cars there as part of the Racing Team’s publicity and support of Veterans.
LTG Maude was a key leader of the Adjutant General’s Corps during an important period of transformation in the Army’s Human Resources community. He influenced Army-wide personnel policy and led the way towards the professionalization of Army Human Resources positions. His highest priority was taking care of the heart of the Army, both Soldiers and their Families; a job he loved with great passion. LTG Maude was first and foremost a Soldier. His peers remember his usual introduction as, “I’m Tim Maude and I’m a Soldier.” As a creative thinker, the innovations he brought to the Army include a visionary concept of an electronic ‘paperless’ Army, the successful “Army of One” recruiting campaign, and the vision of Personnel Services Delivery Redesign for a brigade-centric Army. His outstanding service to the Army and its Soldiers ended tragically when he was killed in the 11 September 2001 terrorist attack on the Pentagon. LTG Maude was the highest ranking officer killed in the attack and the most senior officer killed by enemy action since World War II.
