In the aftermath of 9/11, Mr. Doorey served on the Joint Staff's Intelligence Directorate (J2) Crisis Management Division, preparing the Chairman's Daily Brief, supporting Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), Operation Iraq Freedom (OIF), and numerous military and counter-terrorism contingency operations throughout the world. In addition to his operational assignments in the Navy, he served as Special Assistant for NATO's Supreme Allied Commander, Atlantic (SACLANT)/Commander, US Atlantic Command (USACOM) in Norfolk, and worked on the Partnership for Peace (PFP) program. He also served on the US SOUTHERN Command's J2 Plans and Targeting Division.
