My son is commissioning next month on the 12th of August in the Corps of Engineers. He is not a degreed engineer as he is Political Science w/a concentration in Security Studies. My question is, what does a 2nd Lt. Engineer officer do? to specify more on his unit, he will be assigned to a Multi-Bridge company out in Ft. Belvoir (he is in the USAR) I have asked a lot of people what engineers do and all people tell me is that he creates bridges and blows it up.
