  • Careers at Straughan Environmental

    smart quoteI was retired from the Air Force for more than 15 years before I came to Straughan. I really missed the sense of family in the Air Force. At Straughan, I have found the same sense of family- there when needed and always providing the support and tools I need to help NASA meet environmental responsibilities.

    Former Federal Program Director, NASA
