WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Former U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis will rejoin the board of defense company General Dynamics Corp (GD.N), seven months after quitting his job in the Trump administration over disagreements about the president’s foreign policy, the defense contractor said on Wednesday.

Mattis, a retired Marine general, previously served on General Dynamics’ board but resigned in 2017 to take the top job at the Pentagon after being nominated by President Donald Trump.
