The 18th Engineer Brigade Shoulder Sleeve Insignia, or unit patch, was authorized for wear on 10 February 1966—more than a dozen years after the unit had been redesignated from the Army Reserve’s Headquarters and Headquarters and Service Company, 347th Engineer General Service Regiment and activated under its new title at Fort Leonard Wood. It was redesignated as the 18th Engineer Brigade (Theater Army) in 2004, but retained this insignia up until its fifth and final inactivation in May 2014.

Crafted almost exclusively using the Corps of Engineer colors of scarlet and white, the color version of the 18th Engineer Brigade unit patch (and CSIB) comprises a square oriented to recall a diamond, with white borders and a white embattlement set up on a scarlet field. The four corners of the embattlement stand for the four campaigns the Brigade took part in during World War II; the four sides of the interior red square represent Engineer functions of Planning, Training, Construction, and Combat Support. An unsheathed sword superimposed on the crenellated square denotes military vigilance during peacetime and fulfillment of engineer missions during wartime. White borders on the insignia’s outer edges are a symbol of the unit’s unyielding integrity.
