The article focuses on the retirement of Lieutenant General Carl A. Strock as the U.S. Corps of Engineers commander. With Strock's surprise announcement that he will retire from the post, the Army is already searching for his replacement. Whoever succeeds Strock will face rough challenges on all sides, such as bolstering hurricane-battered Louisiana levees before a new storm hits and rebuilding Iraqi infrastructure as insurgents' attacks persist.
