Col Drew Krog is an Individual Mobilization Augmentee (“IMA”) assigned to the Office of the Staff Judge Advocate in the Air Forces Reserves. When on active duty orders, Col Krog fills in for the Staff Judge Advocate in the 25th Air Force, providing advice and legal support to a two-star general. When he is not on active orders, Col Krog coordinates information and leadership in the reserve chain and manages information and administrative management of all IMAs in the 25th Air Force.
After earning his undergraduate degree in psychology from George Washington University, Col Krog continued his studies at Scalia Law, graduating with his J.D. in 1996. Always aspiring to serve in the Air Force but not having the eye sight required to be a pilot, Col Krog saw the JAG Corps as an opportunity to utilize his law degree and serve his country. After 10 years of active duty service, Col Krog transitioned to the reserves and began a career in civil service. He is currently employed as a Senior Trial Attorney with the Small Business Administration, litigating cases related to small business loans and debt collection issues of precedential value.
Col Krog credits the law school’s diverse curriculum and focus on law and economics with instilling in him the ability to sift through facts, quantify, balance and weigh variables to reach a logical answer to any problem—a skill that is invaluable in any organization. Judge Advocates must become knowledgeable in a wide variety of practice areas, so Col Krog advises students interested in a career in the JAG Corps to vary their courses and become comfortable learning new areas of law. He also advises law students to apply for JAG positions early and gain practical experience through internships/externships.
