Engineer Command Subdued Regulation Military Patch
Worn: 3 February 1971 - 30 April 1972.
The colors scarlet and white refer to the Corps of Engineers, while scarlet andyellow are the colors of the flag of the Republic of Vietnam. The three colors combined (scarlet, white, and yellow) represent the engineer command's commitments in combat engineering, construction, and facilities engineering services throughout the Republic of Vietnam. The two crusader's swords symbolize the roles of the engineer command with its two major military arms, the eighteenth and twentieth Engineer Brigades, in military assistance and defense of the Republic of Vietnam. The hexagonal figure is a fortress viewed from above. The upper turrets represent the three engineer groups of the Eighteenth Engineer Brigade, which operated in the upper half of the REpublic of Vietnam, and the lower three turrets the three engineer groups of the Twentieth Engineer Brigade whose area of operations was the lower half of the Republic of Vietnam. The division of the fortress into three elements by the superimposed swords refers to the three engineer districts of North, Central, and South Vietnam.
