25th Distinctive Insignia

25th Armored Combat Engineer Battalion

Combat engineers cleared mines, bridged freezing rivers, cut detonation cords on structures about to blow, plus functioned as infantry riflemen when so ordered.

The 6th Armored Division's 25th Armored Combat Engineer Battalion was one of the best, and received a Distinguished Unit Citation for its WW II service. Up until now, the history of the 25th has been under-represented on this web site, but thanks to the efforts of family members of 25th veterans Horace Lennon (Co. A) and Dewitt Green (Co. B), we now have two documents detailing the activities of this unit which played a critical role in the Super Sixth's success.
