From staff reports
ARLINGTON, Va.—Former Assistant Secretary of Defense and Deputy National Security Advisor Dr. J.D. Crouch II will be the 23rd President and CEO of the USO, the organization announced Monday.
“I know I am fortunate to be able to join a remarkable USO family that encompasses colleagues, volunteers, supporters and their families,” Crouch said. “I am proud to join and lead this team and eager to begin our work together.”
Most recently, Crouch served as CEO of QinetiQ North America, leaving that position last month. From 2001-03, Crouch served as President George W. Bush’s Assistant Secretary of Defense for International Security Policy, focusing on missile defense, nuclear force and technology security among other areas. He later served as the U.S. Ambassador to Romania for 10 months before returning to Washington in March of 2005 to assume the role of Deputy National Security Advisor.
“I know that J.D. Crouch is the right leader at the right time for the USO,” USO Chairman and retired Air Force Gen. Richard B. Myers said. “He comes to the USO with a record of government service, leadership and innovation, but most important of all, he has a deep and abiding passion for our men and women who serve this country.”
Crouch starts his new role with the USO on July 28.
