George William Casey, Jr. (22 July 1948) is a retired United States Army general who last served as the 36th Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army from 10 April 2007 to 11 April 2011. Casey previously served as Commanding General, Multi-National Force – Iraq from June 2004 to 8 February 2007 and had been in the Army for his entire adult working life.
Casey supports diversity in the American military. After the Fort Hood shooting, where Palestinian-American Nidal Hasan fatally shot 13 people and injured more than 30 others, he said that ‘what happened at Fort Hood was a tragedy, but I believe it would be an even greater tragedy if our diversity becomes a casualty here.’
