Operation Warfighter is a temporary assignment internship program developed by the Department of Defense for service members that are recovering at military treatment facilities throughout the U.S. The program provides wounded, ill or injured service members with meaningful activity outside of the hospital environment and offers a supportive means of transition back to the military or civilian workforce. Operation Warfighter is a great opportunity for service members on medical hold to build their resumes, explore employment interests, develop job skills, and gain valuable federal government work experience that will help them prepare for their futures. The program also enables participating federal agencies to benefit from each Soldier’s considerable talents, skill sets and dedication.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) Savannah District is a proud sponsor of Operation Warfighter, providing meaningful construction-related internships for Warriors in Transition at Army and Air Force installations in Georgia and North Carolina. The Corps needs interns to serve a variety of roles at construction field offices within the district, where they will learn many facets of the career field – from quality assurance to mechanical engineering to contract payment. Each intern is assigned a dedicated USACE mentor to coach and guide progress toward the internship goals. The objective is for interns to come away with valuable construction management skills that can translate into jobs in both private and federal sectors.
