Hello, My father, James Di Salvo, served with the 61st Combat Engineer Batallion in Belgium. He spent time in Dolhane Belgium with a local family and several other soldiers who were housed there just previous to the Battle of the Bulge. Would be interested to hear from any veterans who may have served with my father. We have many letters and some photographs. firstname.lastname@example.org
Singapore Combat Engineers was created in 1967.
Only if the Army Corp of Engineers is unavailable for it. Generally combat engineers are busy performing demolitions or assault bridging.
No. You must actually hold an 11 series (Infantry) Primary MOS while in a combat zone to be awarded a CIB. Combat Engineers get awarded the CAB (Combat Action Badge) for instances of direct contact with the enemy. The only engineers eligible for the CIB are those who hold the 18C - Special Forces Engineer Sergeant - MOS; all Special Forces personnel, with the exception of medical personnel, are eligible for the CIB.
As engineers support combat arms directly, they can be stationed pretty much anywhere combat arms units are to be found... that would be any major installation.
Singapore Combat Engineers's motto is 'Advance and Overcome'.
I believe the 1341st Combat Engineers was created when the 34th Combat Engineer Battalion reorganized on 26 April 1944

The 36th Engineer Combat Regiment saw combat in all that you list except Belgium. Richard V. Horrell WW 2 Connections.com
Since the Marines are the first in, the USMC engineers must provide demolition, maintenance, repairs, and construction to have the theater combat ready when the fighting troops arrive. The Army engineers provide the same service after the Marines are gone and the Army has taken over the military operations.
The first combat aircraft were used in World War 1 over the battlefields of northern France and Belgium.
The 149th Combat Engineers were part of the Army Corp of Engineers. They took part in the invasion of Normandy in 1944, removing the dead, performing road maintenance, and clearing mine fields. The involvement of Companies A and B were integral to the success of the invasion.
US combat engineers call themselves sappers, so yes the 37E has sappers. That answer isn't necessarily true. Not all Combat Engineers are considered "Sappers." There is actually a "Sapper" school, which is sort of the "Ranger" school for Combat Engineers. Yes, there ARE Sappers in the 37th Engineer Battalion but only because they have sent people to Sapper School, which is also located at Ft Leonard Wood, MO, just like the Combat Engineer AIT training. Trust me, I was there. I also was in the 37th Engineer Bn. and I went to Sapper School.

8th Infantry Division
Actual combat arms (infantry and of the like, ie combat engineers, machine gunners, assaultmen, special ops...etc) 8-12%. Most of the military is support, logistics and operations (maintenance, drivers, admin...etc)
Infantry and field artillery are two of the combat arms of the US army. Infantry are foot soldiers, and field artillery are easily movable cannon. Other combat arms include cavalry, armor, combat engineers, coast artillery, and signals.
Although global in combat, the countrysides of France and Belgium were the main battlefields for American soldiers.
I have a copy of the unit history of the 381st Engineer Combat Battalion in my library. Richard V. Horrell WW 2 Connections.com
A combat sport is a competitive contact sport where two combatants fight against each other using certain rules of engagement, in order to simulate actual combat. So yes, fencing is a combat sport.
