Retired U.S. Army Senior Warrant Officer Doug Englen recently announced his candidacy for Tennessee’s state Senate seat in District 22 that includes Montgomery, Houston and Stewart counties.

Englen was the senior warrant officer advisor to the secretary of the Army for talent management and worked out of the Pentagon prior to his retirement. For nearly 22 years, Englen served in the 160th Special Operations Aviation Regiment out of Fort Campbell. As a special operations aviator, he executed some of the highest classified and non-classified missions and spent nearly seven years deployed with 34 combat tours, conducting more than 2,500 missions in support of the global war on terrorism.

Englen has been married to his wife, Tina, for 31 years, and together they have four children and two grandchildren. Together, they have called Clarksville home for the past 22 years.

 “Though I have retired from the United States military, my call to duty is not yet finished” said Englen, “I am announcing my candidacy for Tennessee state Senate District 22. I will bring the values and leadership from my time in service to stand with you on the front lines here at home to solve our community and state’s most pressing issues. I would be honored to have the distinct privilege of serving District 22 in the state Senate.”
