The U.S. Army appointed G. Thomas “Tom” Greco ’72 as a new Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army during an investiture ceremony on May 7, 2024, at the Pentagon. 

Secretary of the Army Christine Wormuth swore in Greco as Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army for Idaho.

“Our CASAs play a critical role in maintaining the Army’s relationships with communities across the nation. From assisting with recruiting efforts to helping our veterans reintegrate into civilian life, CASAs keep our all-volunteer force connected to the country they defend,” said Wormuth. “Tom, Jeff, and Ron are tremendous leaders in their communities, and I am confident that as CASAs, they will be outstanding advocates for the Army.”

“After a 24-year career in the United States Army and service in college and university leadership and Christian ministry positions, it’s an honor to serve Secretary Wormuth as a civilian aide for the Great State of Idaho,” said Greco. “I look forward to telling the Army story in my state for the growth and well-being of our warfighters, military families, and heroic veterans’ transition into civilian life. I plan to assist our local recruiters in attracting and recruiting the next generation of Army Soldiers and leaders.”

G. Thomas “Tom” Greco, from Star, Idaho, served more than 24 years as an infantry officer. He led an air assault task force deep behind enemy lines during Operation Desert Storm and was decorated for valor and heroism. After retirement as a colonel, he served as dean of students at Treasure Valley Community College, Ontario, Oregon; area chair for the School of Business, University of Phoenix; and chief operations officer for Central Christian College, McPherson, Kansas. His previous leadership roles and responsibilities include chairman of the U.S. Board for Youth Unlimited Gospel Outreach; board chairman of the River Conference of the Free Methodist Church; trustee of Seattle Pacific University; regent of George Fox Evangelical Seminary; and founding member of the Cascade Food Pantry. Mr. Greco served on teams that built over 40 homes for needy families in the U.S. and Mexico. He led and coordinated volunteer disaster relief operations for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

CASAs promote good relations between the Army and the public, advise the secretary about regional issues, support the total Army workforce, and assist with recruiting and helping Soldiers as they transition out of the military.

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