ALEXANDRIA, VIRGINIA. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) has been building and contributing to shaping the nation for nearly 240 years. USACE has been featured in a special publication entitled, “Building America,” depicting the organization’s massive mission and multiple avenues through which USACE supports the nation.
The recently published USA Today e-magazine takes an in-depth look at USACE’s civil works and military history, roles and missions, focusing on how "the guiding principles of the Corps direct it to 'strengthen our nation’s security, energize the economy and reduce the risks from disasters...'”
The stories included in the publication highlight USACE’s wide range of responsibilities that remain mostly invisible to the American people, but remain essential to our economic prosperity, security and quality of life. USACE is preparing for the future, and readying to engineer solutions for the nation’s next important challenges. Learn more about who we are and what we do for the country.
