He served in this capacity until November 1944 when he was sent to Moscow, U.S.S.R. as a logistic planner for the U.S. Military Mission.

He returned to Washington in June 1945 for duty as deputy chief, Plans Division, Army Service Forces. In this capacity he assisted in the preparation of plans for the 1946 reorganization of the War Department and was transferred to the Logistics Division, War Department General Staff in May 1946.

In July 1946 he was appointed G-4 (Assistant Chief of Staff, Logistics) Alaskan Department and became J-4 of the Alaskan Joint Command upon its organization Jan. 1, 1947.

On Sept. 26, 1947 he transferred to the U.S. Air Force. He was returned to the United States in December 1947 for duty as executive officer for the Deputy Chief of Staff, Materiel, Headquarters U.S. Air Force, Washington, D.C. He served in this capacity until August 1949 when he entered the National War College as a student.

Upon graduation from the War College in 1950, he was assigned to the Office of Military Assistance, Office of the Secretary of Defense, Washington, D.C.

In March 1951 he was assigned to the Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe Planning Group in Paris and became chief of the Plans and Programs Branch, Logistics Division, upon the activation of SHAPE on April 2, 1951. General Bogart served in this capacity until March 1, 1954 when he was assigned to Headquarters U.S. Air Force as deputy director of budget, and became the director of budget on June 14, 1954. He served in this capacity until July 1958 when he was reassigned to Headquarters Air Materiel Command as director of plans and programs.

In July 1959 General Right was reassigned within Headquarters Air Materiel Command as director of supply where he served until March 1961. He was transferred to Headquarters U.S. Air Force as acting comptroller of the Air Force and on May 19, 1961 was confirmed by the Senate as the comptroller of the Air Force.
