Abstract:

I recently completed a deployment to Iraq as the Division G7 and the Division Engineer for the 25th Infantry Division, which served as the Multinational Division North MND N headquarters at Contingency Operating Base COB Speicher and covered an area equivalent to the size of Pennsylvania. The division converted to the modular structure and deployed after a mission rehearsal exercise and, during the tour, it commanded and controlled four to six modular brigade combat teams BCTs. From my perspective, I think the modular engineer force structure is about right. I offer the following observations based on my 15 months in Iraq.
