 Combat engineering
A combat engineer is a military specialist in using the tools and techniques of engineering under combat conditions, who may perform any of a variety of tasks.
The difference between a military engineer and a combat engineer is that a combat engineer usually operates during battle and under fire, while a military engineer is mostly not directly involved in the fighting.
Combat engineers typically support this role through reduction of enemy obstacles which include point and row minefields, anti-tank ditches, wire obstacles, concrete and metal anti-vehicle barriers and wall and door breaching in urban terrain.

 The Distributed Engineering Plant
Although the Navy has conducted land-based testing of individual combat systems, such as Aegis, for over twenty years, this was the first time that a significant number of disparate combat systems dispersed throughout the country were netted together for land-based testing in a battle group environment.
The Distributed Engineering Plant provides a comprehensive family-of-systems test environment to assess the interoperability of the ships and aircraft of a specific battle group before new or upgraded systems are introduced to fleet units.
Developing, engineering, testing, and evaluating these systems on a theaterwide level of interoperability will be critical if the United States is to employ its sensors and weapons to their fullest capabilities.

Engineers played a vital part in maintaining a high state of readiness at the bases by sustaining the morale of deployed personnel in the Gulf War.
After the military engineers had deployed, civilians, reservists, and remaining military engineers operated and maintained the bases in the continental United States (CONUS), where activities did not always diminish and sometimes actually increased (e.g., as was the case at Langley AFB, Virginia, despite the deployment of aircraft and people).
The fact that engineering activities during base recovery and restoration were not required during the Gulf War does not diminish their importance.

After years of effort by the other combat arms, the army has relented and created a Close Combat Badge (CCB) for troops in armored, cavalry, combat engineering and field artillery units.
Sustained combat is a recent development, seen on a wide scale for the first time during World War I (1914-18).
But the non-infantry combat units sometimes see more intense combat than the infantry, such as when combat engineers get out in front of the infantry to clear minefields and obstacles during a major attack.

 Non-Infantry Soldiers Get Combat Badge   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
WASHINGTON - The Army is creating a combat badge for soldiers who come under fire in close combat in Iraq and Afghanistan but who are not otherwise eligible for special recognition because they are from armor, artillery or other non-infantry units.
Until now, only infantrymen who participated in direct combat missions and came under fire were given the Combat Infantryman Badge, a coveted distinction that counts in their favor when eligible for promotions.
The same applies to other ground combat soldiers like those in armor, combat engineering and cavalry, who have been called upon to do infantry missions and are personally present under fire.
