Save Our Heroes’ is proud to announce Colonel Doug ‘Bulldog’ James (Ret) appointment to the position of Chairman of the Board. Doug is a natural fit to the position, having been falsely accused himself, and therefore has a unique understanding of what other service members are going through.

At the Pentagon, Doug managed the A-10, F-117, Unmanned Combat Air Vehicle (UCAV), and the Advanced Targeting Pod (ATP) programs. Two of his programs, the A-10C and the Sniper Targeting pod have become main stays into today’s combat operations. Doug also worked on the USAF’s Legislative Liaison Staff ensuring Congressional members understood the importance of Air Force programs such as the F-22. Doug is a USAF Command Pilot with over 2,800 hours in fighter aircraft to include the A-10 and the F-15C. He has flown in support of Operations PROVIDE COMFORT, SOUTHERN WATCH and NORTHERN WATCH.
