What do the Canadian Armed Forces engineers do while tucked into a remote military training area in western Ukraine? Simply put, they do anything and everything.
Recently, they have been building, renovating, constructing, grading, plumbing, wiring and labouring. Construction and field engineers alike have been working at the International Peacekeeping and Security Centre in Yavoriv, Ukraine, preparing for the deployment of Canadian soldiers on Operation UNIFIER, Canada's military training mission to the Ukraine.
Que font les ingénieurs des Forces armées canadiennes lorsqu'ils sont isolés dans une zone d'entraînement militaire de l'Ukraine occidentale? En un mot, tout. Au cours des dernières semaines, ils ont construit, rénové et nivelé, se sont occupé de la plomberie et du câblage
en plus d'effectuer des tâches de manœuvre.

Sgt. 1st Class John Reyes' passion for teaching was evident during the time he spent at the Canadian Forces School of Military Engineering in New Brunswick.
Although he was there to observe and advise, Reyes could not resist giving on-the-spot instruction to students training to be military engineers. For example, while the students were setting up Mobile Floating Bridges and rafts, similar to the U.S. Army's Improved Ribbon Bridge, he offered some quick safety tips, which they adopted.
As part of the lessons learned from Operation Protective Edge, all infantry sub-squad commanders will undergo training as battle engineers and learn how to handle explosives. The training will allow them, in the next war, to better cope with the type of urban combat in which booby-trapped structures and objects are the norm. Training for the current class of sub-squad commanders was already underway at the IDF's School for Infantry Corps Professions and Squad Commanders in southern Israel.
Less than a year after Prime Minister Stephen Harper told Russian President Vladimir Putin to "get out of Ukraine," Canadian soldiers have landed in the troubled country.
There are 150 of them to be precise — military personnel with expertise in explosives detonation and other battlefields skills.
When Harper was at the G20 Summit in Australia last fall, he told Putin: "I guess I'll shake your hand, but I only have one thing to say to you: You need to get out of Ukraine."
T-shirt, jeans and the irreverence to speak up in class — Mike Legere could be your typical business student.
Except that he's got a few grey hairs and his T-shirt bears the logo of the Canadian Army's 1 Combat Engineer Regiment.
You see, what's happening in a sixth-floor classroom in the University of Regina's Education Building is not your typical class.
It's the third edition of an annual "boot camp" in entrepreneurship for veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces.
It's day two of the Horizontal Construction Engineers Senior Leader Course on Fort Leonard Wood, MO, and Soldiers from across the country are gathered at a multi-purpose bridge site taking measurements and working on calculating the rapid classification of fixed bridges. They've been up since 5 a.m., having already taken their required Army Physical Fitness Test, and these students are excited to be out of the classroom, taking advantage of the opportunity for some hands-on training out in the field as they learn how to become more proficient in supervisory roles in their military jobs.
Personnel at the Army Aviation and Missile Research, Development, and Engineering Center (AMRDEC) will transfer the first prototype of the Multi-Mission Launcher (MML) to Program Executive Office, Missiles and Space (PEO MS). Both AMRDEC and PEO MS call Redstone Arsenal in Alabama home. More than 150 subject matter experts, assembled by AMRDEC, with representatives from six directorates and more than 20 functional areas designed, manufactured, procured, assembled, and tested the MML, the U.S. Army’s newest Air Defense launcher.
