SAVANNAH, GA -- "I am boots-on-the-ground," says Cindy Sewell, a project engineer lending her expertise to $1.16 billion in Base Realignment and Closure construction project at Fort Benning, Ga. Her latest effort: Overseeing construction of the vehicle maintenance training complex for the Abrams family of tanks.

Sewell's enthusiasm for the job comes quite naturally. Her father worked for the Corps of Engineers for 41 years. "I would hear him come home and talk about the things he was doing and I thought, 'how cool would that be'' " So, she put aside her degree in dairy science to go back to school and follow in her dad's footsteps.

With most of her engineering experience at Fort Benning spent on living quarters and administrative facilities, this is Sewell's first hands-on classroom facility. "It makes me feel good that what I'm building out here is going to go to the Army and the Marines and help them better develop their skills," she says.

The 185,000 square foot complex will house 132 staff and 500 students in various classes.
A Project Engineer is on construction sites every day, overseeing the management of construction of important U.S. military projects. Project Engineers are an integral part to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The job is never boring. And neither are the people in it.
