Washington, DC– Today, Partnership for a Secure America (PSA) welcomed Admiral (Ret.) Michael Mullen as a member of the organization’s renowned Advisory Board. Mullen served as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the top military advisor, for four years to Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama during his 43 years of service in the U.S. Navy. Mullen is widely recognized for his broad-minded leadership, overseeing the end of the combat mission in Iraq and developing a new military strategy for Afghanistan. In addition, he is an ardent promoter of international partnerships, new technologies and new counter-terrorism tactics.
Mullen graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD in 1968, and proceeded to embrace every challenge he was presented throughout his career with strong determination. Since retiring from the U.S. Navy, Mullen continues to serve his community and country through his dedication to helping fellow veterans, service members and their families, while also teaching the next generation of leaders at the Woodrow Wilson School of International Affairs at Princeton University.
By joining the PSA Advisory Board, Mullen becomes the 23rd member of this distinguished bipartisan group.
“I am pleased to be a part of such an important organization,” said Mullen. “PSA’s mission of bipartisanship in the area of foreign policy and national security is imperative in today’s political climate. Promoting thoughtful, common-ground policy remains critical to addressing our nation’s great challenges.”
“PSA is thrilled to welcome Admiral Mullen to the Advisory Board,” said Nathan Sermonis, PSA Executive Director. “Admiral Mullen’s experiences and ideas will provide a fresh approach to PSA’s mission, and we look forward to working together.”
PSA is a nonprofit founded by former U.S. Representative Lee Hamilton (D-IN) and the late U.S. Senator Warren Rudman (R-NH) to promote bipartisanship on foreign policy and national security issues facing the country today. Utilizing the leadership of its Advisory Board, PSA has unique credibility and experience to generate space for thoughtful discussion and craft effective policy that advances America’s national interests.
