CW4 Patrick L. Rasmussen retires after almost 22 years active duty
Chief Warrant Officer Four (CW4) Patrick L. Rasmussen, a Special Agent with the US Army Criminal Investigation Command (CID), Joint Base Lewis-McChord, WA, retired from the US Army in June 2018. CW4 Rasmussen grad-uated from Westfield High School in 1994 and entered the US Army in 1996 with an occupational specialty of Military Police. CW4 Rasmussen was later accepted into the elite Special Agent program within the US Army CID in 2000, where he was served ever since. The US Army CID is responsible for investigating all facets of complex felony crimes and providing executive protection to the Secretary of Defense, Secretary of the Army, and other DoD VIPs. CW4 Rasmussen served just shy of 22 years of active duty service. He served all over the World to include a hardship tour at Camp Casey, Republic of Korea, along with combat tours in Baghdad, Iraq, and Kandahar, Afghanistan. Upon retirement, CW4 Rasmussen was hired as a civilian Special Agent by the US Army Criminal Investigation overseeing di-gital forensics within the 6th Group CID area of operations. CW4 Rasmussen and his family, Dr. Ruth Anne Rasmussen, Caleb, Mason, and Madison, now reside on the southern slope of the Olympic Mountains in the rural coastal county of Gray’s Harbor, Washington state. Their free time is spent outdoors hunting, fishing, and exploring the picturesque Pacific Northwest (and of course watching the Green Bay Packers). He is honored to call Roger and Mary Rasmussen, rural Wautoma, his parents.
