SLU LAW hosts promotion for Major General Strom

March 12, 2014
 
SLU LAW’s Pruellage Courtroom served as the venue Tuesday for Brigadier General Cassie Strom’s promotion to Major General in the United States Air Force.

In addition to her illustrious career in the Air Force, Strom also runs the Veterans Advocacy Project through the Catholic Legal Assistance Ministry (CLAM), which is housed in SLU LAW’s Scott Hall.
 
Major General Stephen Danner, Adjutant General for the Missouri National Guard, served as the presiding officer for the event and SLU LAW 3L Sarah Boyce served as master of ceremonies.
 
Strom currently serves as a judicial advocate for the Air National Guard, representing more than 270 JAGs and 180 paralegals, making sure they get the training and resources they need to do their jobs.
 
“As the war winds down … we actually need Cassie in that position more than ever,” said Major General Danner. “Now is when the need really rises for our soldiers and airmen who have fought the good fight and have come home.”
 
Through her work with CLAM, Strom works with several agencies around the St. Louis region in a collaborative effort to help veterans in need.
 
 “I stayed in the military in large part because of the things I got to do and the work I got to do,” Strom said. “When I came back and joined the Guard, I think that is when I learned what service meant and commitment meant. Not only serving your country, but serving your community.”
