Faircount is pleased to announce that the 2012-2013 U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Building Strong®: Serving the Nation and the Armed Forces publication has been released.
In it, you’ll find an interview with the new USACE chief of engineers and commanding general, Lt. Gen. Thomas P. Bostick. He discusses his priorities for the organization and USACE’s role during the response and recovery efforts after Hurricane Sandy, among other topics. After his introduction, and to better describe the missions of the organization, the publication is divided into three sections: Prevent, Shape, and Win. Each segment highlights the exceptional work USACE conducts: From the advancement of technologies and research that helps warfighters to levee and flood risk management to civil works projects and sustainability to its support for combatant commanders and partner nations to its recreational and regulatory programs – all content is aimed to inform and educate readers about the nation’s engineer service.
