Abstract:

The engineer company, light equipment, is undoubtedly one of the most versatile units in the Corps of Engineers. The variety of missions the company can accomplish epitomizes the resourcefulness of the entire engineer force. While exceptional in capability, the light equipment company must look to the future to ensure that it continues to meet the maneuver commander s needs. Through evaluation of the training in preparation for deployment to support Operation Iraqi Freedom, and the performance of the unit in theater, we in the 887th Engineer Company Light Equipment Air Assault, Fort Campbell, Kentucky, have developed recommendations for the light equipment company of the future. We believe that a new modified table of organization and equipment MTOE should be developed, since the last complete revision was in 1983, so the light equipment company of the future will be an even more versatile asset for the Army.
