With almost 800 people, the Transatlantic Division executes projects in the majority of the countries within the USCENTCOM area, from Egypt through the Middle East and Central Asia. The Transatlantic Division, headquartered in Winchester, Virginia, oversees construction programs exceeding $4 billion through the Middle East District, Transatlantic Afghanistan District, Task Force Essayons in Kuwait and Iraq, and Mosul Dam Task Force in Iraq. The Division also provides contingency and field force engineering resources for Operations Inherent Resolve, Freedom’s Sentinel, Resolute Support, and other military activities throughout the region.
