The Disabled Veterans National Foundation (DVNF) proudly congratulates Dr. Rory Cooper on his appointment as Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army (CASA) for Pennsylvania (West). The investiture ceremony will be Thursday, 1 MAY 2014 at the U.S. Army War College at Carlisle Barracks.

CASAs provide individual advice to the Secretary of the Army, the Chief of Staff of the Army and commanders at all levels on public sentiments toward the Army. CASAs also work closely with Army and installation commanders, Army National Guard and Army Reserve commanders, and other designated personnel within their area of responsibility.

DVNF is excited to see Dr. Rory Cooper's success in this position as he has shown such success with Human Engineering Research Laboratories (HERL) at the University of Pittsburgh. Read more about DVNF's initiative to support HERL on their website.

The HERL lab at the University of Pittsburgh improves the mobility and function of people with disabilities through advanced engineering in clinical research and medical rehabilitation. Every day, men and women return from service with mobility disabilities and this new DVNF initiative is the start of improving the lives of those veterans.
