Summary
In this episode of the U.S. Army's The Big Picture television series, combat engineers are seen building roads in Burma, constructing airstrips in North Africa, and relieving flood victims and communities in times of disaster. Audiences are introduced to the men and women whose job it is to provide combat engineers in the field with the equipment they need when they need it - the United States Army engineers, who are "Standing by - ready when needed," whether during war or peace. This video from the National Archives and Records Administration goes behind the scenes in the Corps of Engineers to show, among other things, an electronic brain that answers questions.
