Abstract This article is adapted from a speech given on 23 April 2009 to attendees of ENFORCE 2009 at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. Engineer history is inundated with success stories of agile and adaptive leaders contributing to our nation s progress. You are the organization that gave us the United States Military Academy, the Washington Monument, the Panama Canal, and the Pentagon, and you are in greater demand today than ever before. The United States Army Corps of Engineers is at work in more than 90 countries, supporting 159 Army installations and 91 Air Force installations and operating 609 dams and 257 navigation lock chambers at hundreds of sites. You operate 24 percent of America s hydropower capacity. Engineers are serving as architects, ecologists, geologists, park rangers, accountants, cartographers, chemists and, most notably, as warriors. Since 11 September 2001, approximately 70 percent of our engineer force that s including the newest engineers that haven t even had an opportunity to deploy have served our nation in a hostile area at least once. More than 30 percent have deployed multiple times. And it s more than just deployments the unique, but critical, aspect of engineer life is the important and complex missions you perform daily all over the world and many in the continental United States. From the mountains of Afghanistan to the Red River in North Dakota, Army engineers are the most diverse group of selfless servants in our Army today.
