  • Wounded Warriors Gain Hands-On Experience with Corps of Engineers

    The Honolulu District has developed working relationships with two Wounded Warrior units: the Warrior Transition Battalion based at Schofield Barracks and the Marine Wounded Warrior Detachment based at Marine Corps Base Hawaii, Kaneohe. The mission of these organizations is to transition Warriors and families from injury, illness, or disease to duty or veteran status. When servicemembers become wounded, ill, or injured, they often face a major change in their career trajectory. While approximately 50% return to their military careers, many separate from service and begin a new career in the civilian workforce.
  • District Professional Development Immersion Offers Engineer Officers Hands-On USACE Experience

    The world of U.S. Army Engineers is one of numerous capabilities across many different specialty career fields. The Engineer Regiment is comprised of combat engineers, bridge crews, geospatial engineers, divers, firefighters, and construction workers of various trades. When a new Engineer Officer is commissioned, he or she can be assigned to any of these diverse types of units. On rare occasions, junior engineer officers may also be assigned to work with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), a command with approximately 37,000 dedicated Civilians and Soldiers delivering engineering services to customers in more than 90 countries worldwide. Because the Corps of Engineers sets the standard for our profession in military construction, many junior officer engineers leap at the chance to work within the organization. As such, any opportunity to learn from the vast expertise within the Corps would definitely be a tremendous boost to my skill set and career path.
