  • USACE Galveston District’s Employee Spotlight on Gerson Reyes

    GALVESTON, Texas (Sep. 1, 2016) – Gerson Reyes was born in Central America, during a difficult time of conflict between his homeland and El Salvador. The hostilities became so prevalent that the U.S. Army was sent to his country to provide aid, infrastructure and to help bring stability to the region. At an outpost just outside of his hometown, Reyes’ frequent interactions with the Soldiers soon turned to admiration for their mission, which even years after they had departed left him inspired to one day become a Solider for the Corps.
