16th Engineer Brigade
18 December 1969 - Current.
The two crossed towers, forming a saltire (a symbol
used during the Crusades to reward those who scaled
town walls), refer to the combat aspects of the engineers.
The saltire formed by the two crossed towers simulates an
"X," the map symbol used for brigades.
