2015 – it’s a rap

It’s the end of the year, halls decked with cheer
So it’s time to look back for the Corps of Engineers

Projects so vast too much to count
but here’s a quick bit for what we’re all about

Washington got things begun
and started the Corps before the War was won

Since that time so much has changed
but in many ways, the mission’s the same:

Building strong, energizing the economy
to help ensure our nation’s autonomy

But zooming in, just like a pic
Let’s focus on Savannah District

— Break —

Early in the year it was the ironclad
Revealing Civil-War-gems no one knew she had

In the summer, we got a new commander, true
and thanked the Navy for all they do

Helping out with STEM just giving back
and brought our sons & daughters to the workplace (snap!)

We started outer harbor dredging
and used other sand to protect endangered fledglings

Ok, technically some were species of concern
But don’t mention that to the Royal Tern

And don’t forget Pulaski
erosion threatened its history

So we bulked up the beach got the park on station
for what engineers call “shoreline stabilization

— Break —

Our FEST team aided the Afghans, y’all
But still made time for battle ball

One of our dams starred in Hunger Games
It starts with a ‘T’ but we’re not naming no names (Thurmond!)

And the other two, were like a platinum song
Over 10 million visitors can’t be wrong

Promoting safe recreation
By offering flotation
No place you’ll love more than the Savannah Corps
in terms of charm, we lead the nation

But as we look back, we’re looking forward, too
‘cause in ’16 there’s so much left to do.

But before we go there’s one more thing to say
From our family to yours, Happy Holidays!
