20th Engineer Brigade Combat Airborne Corps

Worn from:
29 June 1967 - Current.

The castle tower is suggested by the Corps of Engineers branch insignia.
Its base is pointed, in reference to the brigade's combat requirements.
The tower also represents the headquarters of the brigade; the white
areas grouped around the tower, simulating carpenter squares, allude
to the engineer combat and construction groups which it serves. The
tower and white areas also simulate heavy construction (buildings,
compounds, fortifications, bunkers, revetments, runways, roads, etc.);
placed on a square they allude to the establishment of bases. The red
border and the red saltire refer to lines of communication.

The 20th EN BDE was redesignated airborne after vietnam and
the patch since has been worn with the Airborne tab. It's official
designation is 20th Engineer Brigade (Combat) (Airborne Corps).

Request for letter of support by Jose G. Rivera,

Looking for witness letter of support in PTSD claim. I was stationed at the 184th Ordnance Battalion in 1969. Engineers supported our base. One of the engineers tried to sneak past my tower where I was conducting guard duty. I came within seconds of shattering this guy with an M60. While he got arrested within seconds before I shot him, the experience traumatized the hell out of me to this date. This unit was assigned at Phu Tai, near Qui Nhon.

I was an US soldier in Dong Tam, Rvn, from 12/68 to 04/70.
y unit was the 20th brigade, 34th group, 93rd engineers, D-company, third platoon. I am looking for anyone who served in the conflict with me at that time. My mos was 62l20, but the delta was so porous it would not stand the weight of a 290m clark scraper. I was assigned to operate a potable drinking water truck in the delta and serviced most hamlets of Tan An, Go Cong, Dong son, Dong Tam, and several other hamlets in the delta. I was in support of the 9th infantry division, but they pulled out in June 1969 and left us 202 engineers to guard the fire base. My name is George H. Boand, SP-5, and served in Vietnam. Anyone who remembers me or my truck, which was called "Clearwater revival" please contact me by way of e-mail. Thank you all you Vets. and a most welcome home,.
