Margaret Ingerslew

Lieutenant Colonel Margaret Ingerslew attended Lincoln Lutheran from 1997-2001. She then attended Concordia University in Seward where she earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and Chemistry. She attended Officer Training School and was commissioned into the United States Air Force in 2008 where she serves as an evaluator and instructor Weapon Systems Officer on the B-52 and B-1. She continued her education in 2014 with a Master of Organizational Management from Brandman University in Irvine, CA. In 2020, while stationed at Maxwell Air Force Base near Montgomery, Alabama, she completed the Joint All Domain Strategist program and the School of Advanced Air and Space Studies through Air University. There, she earned a Master of Military Operational Art and Science in 2021 and a Master of Philosophy in Military Strategy in 2022.

Today, Lt Col Margaret Ingerslew is employed by the United States Air Force as the Deputy Director of the Deputy Commander Action Group at Offutt Air Force Base. Margaret and her husband Seth have three children, Andersen, Madeline, and Scarlet. 

As she looks back at her time as a Warrior, she fondly recalls band and choir tours, state music
competitions, and the senior class trip. Her most favorite memories are the car trips to and from school with her friend Chelsea, who is still her friend going on 35 years. Margaret believes that the educational foundation she received at Lincoln Lutheran enabled her to thrive through the rigor of college, military training and education, as well as graduate studies. The advice she has for today’s Warriors is to be true to yourself, know your worth, and guard your beliefs and core values.
