The Fort Worth District has deployed over 100 of its members, some of which have deployed multiple times, as part of the military and civilian contingent of the Army Corps of Engineers in the Middle East. Fort Worth District members, along with other Corps personel, have worked closely with other governmental and non-governmental agencies in both Iraq and Afghanistan. They provide technical assistance and construction services in support of USACE's overseas contingency operations. Fort Worth District employees assist in meeting the basic needs of the citizens of Iraq and Afghanistan. By developing local capacity and literally paving the road to democracy, District employees continue to offer hope to future generations of both countries.
