Upon his retirement from the Air Force, General Douglass was called upon by President Clinton to contribute his expertise to the Pentagon by serving as Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development and Acquisition. He was responsible for ensuring that our Sailors and Marines were fully supported with the ships, aircraft, weapons systems and equipment that they needed to fight and be safe.
More recently, he served as the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Aerospace Industries Association, where he represented a vital sector of America’s industrial base in promoting strong and sensible business practices at the Pentagon, an effective export policy for American aerospace products and the preservation and expansion of United States jobs.
