On Wednesday, the United States Corps of Engineers announced the newest addition to the 412th Theater Engineer Command, Brig. Gen. Steve Hayden.
The 412th Theater Engineer Command is headquartered in Vicksburg and provides trained and ready forces to support operations globally. They provide policies, guidance resourcing and administrative support.
Hayden was recently promoted to the rank of Brigadier General in February, having previously been commander of the Army Reserve’s 926th Engineer Brigade.
“My time as commander was very eventful,” Hayden said. “The culminating events and Iron Castle University [training and mentoring program for the junior captains] was really me giving a vision to the staff and supporting units and being inspired by seeing them accomplish that.”
Those who previously served under Hayden expressed how he made a powerful impact.
“He pushed us ahead by leaps and bounds beyond what we were before,” said an assistant plans officer assigned to the 926th Engineer Brigade, Maj. Mark Desouza.See a typo? Report it here.
