AEA 2018 Calendar of Events

2017 was an awesome year for the US Army Engineer Regiment and 2018 looks to be a very busy year. I am taking this opportunity to map out the events for this coming year so that you can start putting critical dates into your Calendar. This past year, USACE and most of the Engineer units in all components of the Army have responded and are continuing to respond to three devastating hurricanes that have struck the United States. They are removing debris and reestablishing many of the essential services in these stricken regions. We have sponsorships available to help us recognize their efforts as the best of the Regiment with the Engineer Regimental Awards of excellence.


AEA 2018 INDUSTRY EXHIBITION AND REGIMENTAL WEEK

16 -20 April 2018 is the Engineer Regimental Week at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. During this week several Engineer Regimental events will be conducted. The Best Sapper competition is a grueling 50-hour event challenging unit teams on engineer skills and endurance. In addition, the AEA Industry Exhibition is an excellent opportunity for Leaders of Industry to display their equipment and provide information on how it supports Engineer Operations to senior Engineer Leaders and the Maneuver Support Center Capability Development Integration Directorate (CDID). The Fallen Engineer Tribute will honor Engineer Soldiers who gave the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our Nation. Culminating Engineer Regimental Week is the Regimental awards for excellence presented at the Regimental Ball on 20 April. These awards recognize the best Engineer Soldiers, Civilians, NCO’s, Warrant Officers and Lieutenants of all components of the United States Army Engineer Regiment.

2018 AEA ENGINEER INDUSTRY SEMINAR AND 150th ENGINEER CASTLE BALL

2 Aug 2018 is Industry Seminar at the Crystal City Hyatt Hotel, NCR. The initial planning for this event is looking at the after action report on national disaster response to cover the three Hurricanes and California Wild Fires. We anticipate requirements to emerge that improve contracting, access to material, interagency cooperation and equipping of engineer units to emerge as topics. We will update this throughout the year..

3 Aug 2018, the 150th Annual Engineer Castle Ball at the Crystal City Hyatt Hotel. This event is the pinnacle of the USACE Recognition of Excellence program and coincides with the 150th anniversary of the Engineer Castle Ball. We plan to celebrate the 150 years of support to the nations with commemorative print and other items of the Engineer Regiments support to the Nation and the Capital Region. See links to the right for more detailed information.


NEW PROGRAM FOR 2018 - THE ENGINEER REGIMENT HISTORY TILE PROGRAM.

The Engineer Regiment will celebrate its 250th Anniversary in 2026. With this major milestone of service, AEA would like to better tell the rich history of the Engineer Regiments, Soldiers and their accomplishments. AEA proposes a continuing education program to better educate the current Soldiers of the Engineer Regiment and tell the courage, ingenuity and sacrifice of the Engineers that preceded them in service. We have started to capture the best 100 missions/events over the last 243 years that best exemplify the history of the Regiment. These will be captured on ceiling tile in the ESSAYONS Room in the Engineer Museum.
