Retired U.S. Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis has joined the Hoover Institution as a full-time Annenberg Distinguished Visiting Fellow, where he will focus on national security and foreign policy issues.

The nearly four-decade military veteran most recently served as commanding general of U.S. Central Command, where he led the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and oversaw military activities in 20 countries, the Hoover Institution said Monday.

“In my previous jobs, I relied on the work of Hoover fellows to understand the nature of the challenges our country is facing,” Mattis said.

“It’s a privilege to join them as a colleague,” he added.

John Raisian, Hoover Institution director, said the organization appointed Mattis for his knowledge on contemporary conflict and other matters related to national security.

Mattis has also led U.S. Joint Forces Command and was responsible for helping form the Joint Operating Environment 2010, which sought to detail effects of U.S. debt on national defense.
