The Pacific Ocean Division is one of nine divisions worldwide, which make up the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The Corps of Engineers is a dynamic organization with approximately 32,000 civilian employees and 700 military members. This diverse workforce provides vital public engineering services in peace and war to strengthen our nation’s security, energize the economy, and reduce risks from disasters. To successfully meet its broad mission areas, the Corps of Engineers comprises a headquarters office in Washington, D.C.; nine division and 43 district offices; six main engineering, research and development, finance, and technical centers; the 249th Engineer Battalion (Prime Power); and the 412th and 416th Theater Engineer Commands. These offices are located throughout the United States, Asia, the Middle East, and Europe. In fall 2009, the Gulf Region Division in Iraq was inactivated, and a new division, the Transatlantic Division, stood up to manage all overseas contingency operations, including reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan. The missions of all these offices and centers are as varied as the locations and customers they serve.
