Description

A Silver color metal and enamel device overall consisting of a shield blazoned:  Per fess ermines and Gules, on a fess wavy Argent a bar wavy Azure, issuing from base a rising sun of the third.  Attached below and to the sides of the shield a Silver scroll inscribed “OKICIZE EL WAKAGAPI” in Black letters.


Symbolism

Scarlet and white are used for Engineers.  The Battalion’s World War II service in European Theater is represented by the field of ermine frequently used in European coats of arms, and by the wavy partition lines—heraldic representation of water.  The historical descent of the Battalion from the 164th Infantry is represented by the sun in base; the sun being taken from the coat of arms of that Regiment.  The motto translates to “Builders In Battle.”


Background

The distinctive unit insignia was approved on 23 July 1957.  It was amended to revise the symbolism on 29 October 1979.
