Army Maj. Jamie R. Clasen has graduated from the Command and General Staff Officers’ Course at the Army Command and General Staff College, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. The college is the Army’s senior tactical school.

Clasen is the son of Lori L. and Jerry A. Clasen of LaMotte.

He is a 1998 graduate of Bellevue Community High School, Bellevue. He earned a bachelor’s degree in 2007 from the University of Iowa, Iowa City.

The 10-month course educates and trains intermediate-level Army officers, officers from other U.S. armed services, international officers, and civilian leaders from other federal agencies to operate in full-spectrum Army, joint, interagency and multinational environments as field-grade commanders and staff officers.     

Command and General Staff Officers’ Course graduates are attuned to the complexity of the operating environment and consider the impact of culture on military operations; take an ethical, disciplined approach to meeting organizational and strategic-level leadership challenges; and are critical and creative thinkers who can adapt and thrive in ambiguous and ever-changing environments.

 Graduates are prepared to assume war-fighting duties immediately upon graduation.
