#EuropeDistrict says farewell After 6 years, Christine Hamovitz is leaving our district family and returning to #Pittsburgh. During her farewell ceremony, Christine said she enjoyed the work, the traveling and how the district became her family away from family. Originally Christine worked in the Employment Support Office and then transferred to Security. In both jobs she was the right person at the right time, motivated, professional and positive attitude contributing to the mission. She also volunteered on the Special Emphasis Committee for 2 years. #BuildingStrong U.S. Army Corps of Engineers North Atlantic Division #SteelersFan #youwillalwaysbeinmyheart
