SENIOR LEADERS ARE SAYING

"Assisting our warriors back from combat to transition into the civilian workforce is tough under any circumstance; but it's even tougher to adjust to life after a serious injury. We have more than a duty to assist these amazing individuals. We are the proponents of the Warrior Workplace Program and we are advocates for its expansion throughout the Army Corps of Engineers."

-Col. Curtis L. Thalken, commander, New England District
