Happy Birthday to the oldest and most decorated Engineer Battalion in the United States Army! It was 171 years ago today that a company of Sappers, Miners and Pontooners formed at West Point, New York and went off to the Mexican American War. Diehards celebrated the day with 2 birthday parties, one at Camp Humphreys and one at Camp Hovey. Always First! Diehard!
