We are thrilled to induct U.S. Army CPT Charles Maxwell into The Rush Limbaugh Show Hall of Patriots, 2020 class. CPT Maxwell, known to his family as “Charley,” enlisted in the Army after graduating from college in 1999. Starting in 2001, he served as a Green Beret and was deployed to Afghanistan and South America several times where he earned four Bronze Stars (two with valor) and a Purple Heart.
Later, CPT Maxwell transitioned to US Army Special Warfare Center and School, serving as an instructor to Special Operations medics. There he was awarded Instructor of the Year for the Special Warfare Medical Group. In 2012, he received the HPSP scholarship from the Army to attend medical school. He graduated with his degree in 2016, finished his Emergency Medicine residency in 2019, and is now the Group Surgeon for 8th Psychological Operations Group.
CPT Maxwell was nominated for The Rush Limbaugh Show Hall of Patriots by his proud wife Gina. She let us know that he “has always had a goal and achieved what he set his mind to,” including overcoming traumatic brain injury and attending medical school as the oldest in his class. He truly is a tremendous example of an American Patriot.
