Casey and Lieutenant Colonel Bob Lucius, USMC (ret) met in 2001 when they were both students at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey. As Casey tells the story, “We were both studying National Security Affairs and we happened to be taking the same class on Chinese foreign policy. I called and asked him out for ice cream and the rest is history!”
They got married in 2004 in Key West, Florida. They lived in Hanoi, Vietnam from 2005 - 2008. In the summer of 2008, the couple moved to Pacific Grove, CA, and bought their first home in 2009. Upon signing the contract they learned that Casey was pregnant. Their son Bobby was born in December 2009 at CHOMP. He has been an amazing addition to the family. Although, the two cats may disagree!
