John Peabody to join Society of American Military Engineers Foundation

Senior Vice President John Peabody, Mott MacDonald’s Director of Federal Programs, has been nominated to serve on the board of directors of the newly established Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) Foundation.

John Peabody, who retired from the US Army Corps of Engineers as a major general in 2015, commanded three different corps divisions. As Deputy Commanding General for civil and emergency operations, he was responsible for an annual program with a budget of $6 billion. John oversaw civil works activity by over 23,000 military and civilian professionals who were responsible for water infrastructure including 693 dams, 4,254 recreation areas, 926 harbors, over 12,000 miles of commercial inland waterways, and approximately 14,000 miles of levees.

In a letter confirming the appointment, Brigadier General Joseph Schroeder (ret.) said, “We are privileged to have the benefit of your well known talents and your professional commitment to our nation, our profession and to SAME.”

According to Schroeder, “The establishment of the SAME Foundation is a major step toward achieving the 2020 SAME Strategic Plan goals and objectives. We now have an enormous opportunity to support the development of the next generation of military, government civilian, and A/E/C industry leaders.”
