COL Mark R Himes
USACE Omaha District Commander


Hello…from your new Post President. I assumed responsibility as the Omaha Post President this past summer and it is an honor and a privilege to be able to serve our Society in this role. I want to thank Anne Peterson for her outstanding leadership over the last year as she kept our organization focused on its important mission during an extremely challenging and dynamic period. There is no better engineering community than ours represented in the Omaha area and I am excited about the future. I look forward to working with the Board, Committee members, and our outstanding membership to continue the important work of our great organization.
