Congratulations  on a job well done to our faculty member,  Elizabeth Grossi Ph.D., currently on military duty and leave from the University.  She is assigned to the Detainee Operations Division of the Office of the Provost Marshal General, Headquarters Department of the Army,  and they were recognized by the Secretary of Defense for their efforts supporting the transfer of Guantanamo Bay detainees to the custody and control of other countries.  Her team provided the SecDef with essential policy, legal, and legislative advice as well as operational support to ensure detainee transfers protected national security interests and humane treatment policies.  The team's efforts enabled the President of the United States to progressively close the U.S. detention facility at Guantanamo Bay.

Well done and thank you for your service!
