Becoming an Army Engineer to continue a life of service all over the world
The local Beninese construction site lead and the contractor site supervisor discuss a recently completed boat launch project in Cotonou, Benin with U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Europe District project engineers Capt. Ben Ketchum and Chris De Pooter September 29, 2022. Being in Benin was a return for Ketchum who had previously been in Benin as a child while traveling with his family aboard a hospital ship associated with the non-profit Mercy Ships organization. Growing up in that environment instilled a desire to serve others in Ketchum and he ultimately joined the U.S. Army as an engineer where he supports humanitarian assistance and other projects in Benin and several other countries in Africa and Europe.
