TSA's Samuel Bucy Wins Patriot Award

Award given by National Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve

Samuel W. Bucy, Deputy Federal Security Director for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) at Huntsville-Madison County Airport in Huntsville (AL) has been recognized by the National Committee for Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR).  The ESGR sponsors a nationwide awards program that recognizes employers for policies and practices that support employee participation in military reserves units.  Bucy’s name was put forth by one of his screeners, Keith Terry.

Bucy was presented the "Patriot Award" by Lt. Col. Jose R. Atencio, III, Commander of the 441st Explosive Ordnance Battalion, during a ceremony last Saturday at the National Guard Building in Huntsville.

"TSA is very proud of the work Samuel Bucy has done to support our troops and the work he does every day for TSA," said Rear Adm. David M. Stone, USN (Ret.), Assistant Secretary of Homeland Security for TSA.

"TSA employees serve on the front lines on the war against terrorism by providing the highest level of airport security here at home, and sometimes they serve on other front lines as soldiers in the National Guard or the Reserves," Stone said.  "Our support for our employees is unparalleled when they leave TSA to fulfill their duty to the Armed Forces and when they return to TSA."

Prior to joining TSA, Bucy was a manager for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) with security responsibilities for civil aviation airports in Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky and Alabama.  He also has served as a Federal Air Marshal and a field coordinator for the FAA’s K-9 explosive detection program.  Bucy is a veteran of Army Military Intelligence with assignments in the 18th Airborne Corps, Ft. Bragg (NC) and with the 2nd Infantry Division, stationed in the Republic of South Korea.  He is a graduate of Auburn University.
