Law School Honors Members in Uniform on Veterans Day


Catholic University’s Military and National Security Law Students Association (MNSLSA) hosted a reception on Veterans Day for current and former members of the military within the law school community.
The ninety-minute gathering  on Nov. 12 offered an opportunity for those who have served or who currently serve to chat with one another, as well as share stories and memories with the law school community at large. 
“We owe a debt of gratitude to our veterans who have served or are currently serving,” said Trevor Hehn, co-president of MNSLSA for military interests, who organized the event along with Jessica Retka, co-president of MNSLSA for national security interests.
“Whether they served in fields beyond the Judge Advocate General (JAG) Corps or whether they are alumni currently serving as JAG attorneys, our veterans provide a shining example of using their time and talent for the betterment of society.”
Eighteen CUA law students are current or former service members in one of the branches of the Armed Forces. Added to that list are eleven deans and faculty members, and five staff members of the Columbus School of Law.
Formal remarks were offered by Col. Lawrence Morris (Ret.), general counsel for The Catholic University of America and a 27-year veteran in the Army’s Judge Advocate General’s Corps.
