Job Description


Before a road, airfield, or a building can be constructed, all obstacles must be removed from the site. As a Horizontal Construction Engineer in the Army National Guard, you'll handle the heavy lifting to help your crew succeed. You'll operate bulldozers, roadgraders, and other massive equipment to clear the way for construction.

Earn While You Learn
