  • USACE supports Operations Allies Welcome

    In August 2021, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began supporting “Operation Allies Refuge/Welcome.” The Department of State and Department of Homeland Security-led mission managed the relocations of Afghan nationals and their immediate families who supported the U.S. during the government’s 20-year presence in Afghanistan. USACE support primarily involved developing lease agreements for processing and screening facilities near airports in northern Virginia and New Jersey as well as engineering services, contracting management, and oversight of facility-related services.
