    Contracting Soldiers play key role in U.S. Army Corps of Engineers missions overseas

    WIESBADEN, Germany -- “I deployed to Iraq in 2007, and when I got there everything was just ‘magically’ there. I had food. I had somewhere to sleep. I kind of wondered how did all that get there?” Contracting Specialist Master Sgt. Eulid Temblador said. “Well, it got there through contracts.” Temblador deployed as a radio transmission operator with an infantry brigade then, but has since reclassified to the 51C military occupational specialty, or MOS, an Army career field where Soldiers focus on providing that contracting piece that’s so critical to everything the Army does. He is now one of four Soldiers serving in the Contracting Division of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Europe District. While noncommissioned officers serving as contracting professionals are 51C’s and officers serving as contracting professionals are 51A’s, they are often all conversationally referred to as 51C’s.

    U.S. Army Corps of Engineers trains Ghanaian military partners on base camp design

    When the call comes to support United Nations peacekeeping operations, the Ghana Armed Forces regularly answer that call and are expected to set up their operations at times with little to no existing base camp infrastructure. They could be operating from the corner of an airport, a commandeered sports field or a tract of land in an undeveloped part of a jungle or desert scape – wherever peace needs reinforced. Efficiently and logically developing base camps for deployed forces is key to any mission’s success, and that is why experts from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers were recently in Ghana teaching courses in base camp design to Ghana Armed Forces combat engineers and planners in the Ghanaian capital of Accra.
