The main mission of this organization is to provide military and public works services to the United States. It is involved in a wide range of public civil engineering projects.

Officially known as the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Corps includes over 34,600 federal civilian employees and some 650 military employees. Some of its responsibilities include:

  • Designing, constructing and operating locks and dams. It also tackles waterway dredging, flood control, and beach erosion control.
  • Constructing and maintaining the New Orleans flood protection system.
  • Designing and managing construction for U.S. Army and Air Force facilities and other Defense and federal agencies
  • Ecosystem restoration projects.

The Corps of Engineers can trace its history to the construction of the original fortifications around Bunker Hill (Boston, Mass. area) during the Revolutionary War. By the early 1800s the Corps was stationed at West Point, N.Y., where parts of the organization eventually evolved into the nation's first military academy.

In Washington DC, the Corps of Engineers helped design and build the Washington Monument and the Pentagon.

The Corps currently is led by Lieutenant General Robert L. Van Antwerp.[1}
