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.
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.

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.

Yes, they do- and use them quite well.
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.
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… Read More

For US Army only (Vietnam War era): If you've been in combat with a particular division, you may wear the shoulder patch on your RIGHT shoulder (some men referred to this as a "combat patch"). The left shoulder reflects your current division. If you've never been in combat with that particular division and had worn that division patch on your left shoulder for 20 years (as an example), when you leave that particular division...you may… Read More
15,000 for an Infantry Division. Less for an Airborne Division. Division sizes did vary by type, mission and condition. i.e. Marine Divisions were often termed "reinforced", as in 4th Marine Div reinforced. Additional units, usually independent Battalions of artillery, tanks, engineers etc were often added for additional combat strength before landings took place. This was common and in such cases Marine Divisions sizes could be over 19,000 men.
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.
See related links below for a brief history of the 1276th Combat Engineer Battalion. Every US division had an engineer battalion as an official, organic element of its organization. In addition, there were numerous other "independent" battalions of engineers. They were independent because they were not an official, permanent part of any larger formation. The idea was these independent battalions would be assigned to a higher HQ than a division - to a Corps, or… Read More
There were many units involved in the landing.

It can range from about 16,000 to 19,000.
The 34th "Red Bull" Infantry Division was one of the earliest units to arrive in England. Also the 1st Armored Division arrived there and transitioned to the newer Sherman tanks. Both of these units were the first to be sent into combat in North Africa. The 1st Infantry Division arrived early in UK, I believe. Since the 34th Division fought continually in N. Africa, and Italy, it accrued more time in combat then the 1st… Read More

Your question is a little vague. The Roman army had specialists in all areas. Some of them were engineers, architects, bookkeepers, accountants, armorers, blacksmiths, instructors in the various types of combat and the use of weapons, artillerymen, bowmen and slingers. Each division or compartment of a legion had its compliment of specialists in certain areas.
There is no reason why women should not be in combat. My friend's dad was in the army. He said that there were 20 women in his division and 60 men. When his division was at target practice, almost always the women hit the target. He said it was because the women took more time in aiming there shot.
I have a copy of the unit history for the 260th Engineer Combat Battalion. It would be my pleasure to assist you with any facts that you may desire about the unit. Richard V. Horrell WW 2 Connections.com
XXI Corps combat engineers were actually pretty late to the fight, only joining into combat in mid-January of 1945. Corp operations jumped off against the remnants of the German offensive Operation Nordwind and then moved under control of French 1st Army. They participated and fought in the battle of the Colmar Pocket, resulting in the encirclement and surrender of German divisions besieged there. The combat engineers were employed against the Siegfried Line defensive network, through… Read More
The US eventually created sixteen armored divisions. Only two, the Second and Third, retained the prewar levels of equipment and were considered "heavy" armored divisions. All the others, including the 4th AD, were "light" and had less tanks. The number of tanks was further reduced in the autumn of 1944 as M4 Sherman medium tank losses in Europe outstripped the army's ability to replace them. When the 4th AD entered combat in Europe it was… Read More

What army or division were the 285st engineering combat battalion a part of during world war 2 and what was their route across Europe?
The link below gives a list of the units that were involved in the Battle of the Bulge. It lists the 285th Combat Engineer Battalion as well as a 285th Observation unit. This division was not part of a division. It was probably an independent unit that was attached to the Army. It did receive credit for 3 Campaigns: Ardennes-Alsac, Central Europe and Rhineland.

All the "construction" troops (in the US Army they're called combat engineers) in the East German Army, and the East German Border Command Central.
The nickname "bloody bucket" for the 28th infantry division was actually coined by German soldiers that faced them in combat. The insignia of the 28th Infantry division was a red keystone, symbolizing the fact that the 28th infantry division was a Pennsylvania National Guard unit, and Pennsylvania's nickname is the "Keystone State"
No, the 82nd ARB made 4 combat jumps during world war II. Salerno, Sicily, Normandy, and Holland. The only other combat jump since was into Panama during Operation Just Cause.
The 82nd ABN DIV did not make a combat jump during Desert Storm. The Division was deployed further west. There were no combat jumps during Desert Storm. The last combat jump conducted by the 82nd ABN was DEC 20, 1989 in Panama during Operation Just Cause.
34th "Red Bull" Infantry Division served 517 days of combat. The 1st Battalion, 133rd Infantry served 611 days in combat. The 1st & 34th Infanry Divisions were sent to England for preparation to be used in combat. Both saw service in N. Africa, Sicily, but the 1st Infantry Division was returned to England for preparations of the D-Day invasion.

Assume your question refers to combat with infantry troops and excluding small commando raids. Europe The first American unit to go into combat against the Germans was the 175th Field Artillery Battalion (of the 34th Infantry Division) when it provided support to British 78th Division on 19 November, 1942, at Medjez-el-Bab, Tunisia.

Did the 164th infantry regiment receive the combat infantrymans badge as a whole during their time in the pacific theater in World War 2?
Answer Custermen is correct that the 164th as a whole regiment would not have received the Comabt Infantry Badge. I have done extensive research of the 164th (my Grandfather was a member of Co "I" 164th Inf. Reg) it seems like many or most of them did end up receiving the CAB. This was probably due to their months of training (a little over 9 for original members) at Camp Claiborne, La and the combat… Read More
