The Progress-Index - - MILITARY LIFE -

WASH­ING­TON — The U.S. Army ap­pointed its new­est Civil­ian Aides to the Sec­re­tary of the Army (CASA) dur­ing a re­cent in­vest­ment cer­e­mony in the Pen­tagon.

The Hon­or­able Dr. Mark T. Esper, Sec­re­tary of the Army, se­lected re­tired Brig. Gen. Thomas P. "Patt" Maney to rep­re­sent Florida (North), and se­lected re­tired Brig. Gen. Mabry E. "Bud" Martin to rep­re­sent North Carolina (West).

"It is my dis­tinct priv­i­lege to in­vest Bud and Patt into the CASA pro­gram," Esper said. "Their back­ground in the mil­i­tary and in the busi­ness and pub­lic sec­tors have proven them to be ac­com­plished lead­ers. I have no doubt each will do great things for our Army fam­ily."

CASAs are a vi­tal part of the Army, pro­mot­ing good re­la­tions be­tween the Army and the pub­lic and ad­vis­ing the Sec­re­tary about re­gional is­sues.

Each state, the Dis­trict of Columbia and the five U.S. ter­ri­to­ries have one or more CASAs ap­pointed to pro­vide a vi­tal link be­tween the Army and the com­mu­ni­ties for which they serve. CASAs are usu­ally busi­ness or civic lead­ers who pos­sess a keen in­ter­est in the wel­fare of the Army and their com­mu­ni­ties.

CASAs serve a twoyear term without com­pen­sa­tion. Terms may be ex­tended to a to­tal of 10 years of ser­vice. The sec­re­tary may rec­og­nize a civil­ian aide as a CASA Emer­i­tus af­ter 10 years of ser­vice with dis­tin­guished ser­vice.
