The navigation of becoming an Army officer does not guarantee certain roles, positions, or a specific job in any regard. It may seem as though it can be very specific to lead soldiers with the many different aspects of the Army Corps of Engineers. However, it is very broad in terms of the many different ways an engineering officer may lead a group of individuals and make plans for success. Some officers will see the most success in themselves as a leader who is in the action and a part of a combat-focused job set. Whereas other officers will find the most success in less stressful environments that require less physical stress and more mental stress to be a successful leader. Neither of these characteristics is more important than the other, yet it is apparent that no matter what path you choose, or which path you end up with as an Army officer, all paths can be used cohesively for a lifetime in and out of the service.
