2c Crum

Cadet Second Class Nate Crum: “My own formative experience with CASA occurred about three weeks into my own swab summer in the form of a training facilitated by 2/c and 1/c in civilian clothes. It was a powerful image to see these authority figures, who so far had solely filled the role of strict disciplinarians, standing simply as people firmly against sexual assault in any form. The message was clear: this was not a normal college, and sexual harassment and sexual assault had no place at this institution. Later during 4/c year, I attended a 1 in 4 presentation which further reinforced this point. Yet as I became more involved in CASA, I soon realized that the concept of zero tolerance was only the tip of the iceberg; far more important was encouraging a culture of respect at all times, with all persons.” (U.S. Coast Guard photo by Petty Officer 1st Class Ryan Doss)
