James Mattis, the retired four-star US Marine Corps general who spent just under three years as the commander of the US’ most active combatant command, is joining the board of General Dynamics, the company announced Wednesday.

Mattis retired in May, two months after handing off command of US Central Command, his most significant post that wrapped up more than 40 years in uniform. He oversaw the withdrawal of US troops from Iraq in 2011, as well as continued efforts to contain violence in Afghanistan.

“Jim Mattis is a visionary and an inspiring leader who is renowned for his wisdom, courage and integrity,” said Phebe Novakovic, General Dynamics CEO, in a statement released by the company. “General Dynamics is honored to have him join our board.”
