Army's Kellogg joins Oracle

Retired Army Lt. Gen. Joseph K. Kellogg is the new senior vice president of homeland security at Oracle Corp.

Kellogg, the former director of command, control, communications and computer systems for the Joint Chiefs of Staff who retired July 7, began his new Oracle job last week.

'The company's mission is critically important in our war and homeland security efforts, and by joining this team, I have been given the opportunity to continue to work to strengthen America's defenses," Kellogg said in a statement.

He began his military career in 1967 and served battlefield tours during Vietnam and the first Gulf War. After working his way up the IT ranks, Kellogg became the Joint Chiefs C4 director in October 2000.

President Bush has nominated Marine Corps Maj. Gen. Robert Shea, deputy commander of U.S. Forces Japan, to replace Kellogg.

Kellogg recalled the path that IT had taken during his years with the Army. 'During my career, information technology has increasingly brought the capability of all our military services together, creating a more agile and lethal force, and it will continue to be the dominant agent of change in the future,' he said.
