Featured Alumni: Jameson Lamie (AIPES 08)


For Jameson Lamie (AIPES 08), participating in the American Institute on Political and Economic Systems in Prague in 2008 was, simply put, “the best cultural experience of my life.”

Studying in Prague, while interacting and learning with people from all over Europe and Asia, was incredibly enriching.

Many different ideas and perspectives were presented, which challenged me to open my mind and pushed me intellectually,” said Lamie.

A cadet in the U.S. Air Force Academy at the time of his TFAS studies, Lamie says he still vividly remembers his first day in Prague when a student from Kosovo approached him. Holding back tears, the student hugged Lamie and explained how U.S. Air Force jets protected her family during the Kosovo Conflict of the late 1990s.

“Since that moment, I have had a greater appreciation for wearing the uniform and what it means,” said Lamie. “Our military can be an incredible force for peace in the world, and I take pride in that mission.”

Lamie is now a flight line protocol officer and is stationed at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. He has stayed active with TFAS as an alumnus, serving as a mentor for two students attending a TFAS program in Washington this summer. He is also participating in the 2011 TFAS Leadership Fellows program through which he is able to interact and meet other TFAS alumni who are active in the public policy arena.

Lamie was recently promoted to first lieutenant and is also working toward a master’s degree in government from Johns Hopkins University.

In his free time, Lamie enjoys traveling and watching sports. He has visited 16 of the 30 Major League Baseball ballparks.
