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

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.
The 146th Combat Engineers hace an association. They can be reached at this web address and scrolling down to locate their unit.
