About the Event

The Army Strategists Association reaffirmed its commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in 2022. To help grow understanding in the role that DEI plays in amplifying the strengths of our organizations, ASA inaugurated its DEI and Strategists Speaker Series. We are honored to have Mr. Chevy Cook, the co-founder and Executive Director of, join us for the first of many DEI events to come. 

Currently the Speechwriter for the 25thSecretary of the Army, Lieutenant Colonel Chaveso “Chevy” Cook commissioned from the United States Military Academy (USMA) at West Point, NY. His career began as an Air Defense Artillery officer in 3-4 ADAR (A), 82nd ABN DIV, Fort Bragg, NC. After selection and training he branched Psychological Operations (PSYOP), spending his initial special operations career in 8th PSYOP BN (A) at Fort Bragg. Afterward LTC Cook returned to USMA as a Tactical Officer (D4). Fortuitously he also became an instructor in the Department of Behavioral Sciences and Leadership. Returning to Fort Bragg he commanded D Co, 3rd PSYOP BN (A)(D) and then served as S3 for 7th PSYOP BN (A). During his career he has deployed during “The Surge”, the “Arab Spring”, and the fight against ISIS, in positions ranging from Battery XO up to Task Force J3 (Operations). These and other operational experiences span Iraq (x3) Qatar (x2), Niger, Jordan, Afghanistan, Bahrain, Kuwait, Tajikistan, and the United Arab Emirates.

LTC Cook’s civilian education includes degrees from USMA (BS - 2004), the University of Texas-El Paso (MA - 2008), Columbia University (MA - 2013), and Tufts University (PhD - 2021). Of his professional memberships his non-profit role as co-founder and Executive Director of allows him to uniquely serve others outside of the uniform. He has guest spoken and been widely published on topics of social justice, character, leadership, organizational change, diversity, in extremis leader development, inclusion, innovation, mentorship, and a range of other professional development topics. He has fulfilled all the military education required of an officer and a PSYOP professional, including SERE-C (High Risk), Advanced Airborne School, Military Deception Planners Course, and the Information Operations Capabilities/Applications Course.

Of his awards and decorations, he is most proud of his three Military Outstanding Volunteer Service Medals for sustained community and organizational investment, his branch’s Major General Robert McClure Medal (Bronze), the 2016 Secretary of the Army Diversity and Leadership Award, given to one officer yearly for commitment to equal opportunity practices, Army Values and the professional development of others, and the 2021 Tufts University Presidential Award for Civic Life.
