The 555th Engineer Brigade Combat Service ID Badge is authorized for wear on the Army Service/Dress uniform and Mess/Evening Mess uniforms. It is worn on the right side of both male and female versions of these uniforms; if worn with other identification badges of lower precedence, these may be moved to the left side to give the CSIB more prominence. Only one CSIB may be worn at a time. Additional guidance for wear, including positioning and placement, can be found in Department of the Army Pamphlet 670-1 (DA 670-1).

Approved originally on 30 July 2004 for the 555th Engineer Group, which was given the informal nickname of “Triple Nickle, the Shoulder Sleeve Insignia upon which the 555th Engineer Brigade CSIB is based reflects the unit’s longstanding status in the Engineer branch. Scarlet and white are Engineer colors, with white also serving to recall the Brigade’s extensive service in the desert climates of Iraq (white also recalls unit’s Infantry role when it was an Engineer Combat Group).

A demi-fleur-de-lis represents the Brigade’s participation in several campaigns in France during World War II, with its blue color symbolizing bodies of water crossed as part of achieve mission success. The black eagle is a symbol of Germany and stands for the two campaigns fought in Germany during the Second World War. Ten embattlements combined with the overall device’s five sides evoke the numerical designation of 555.

The insignia was redesignated for the 555th Engineer Brigade on 16 June 2007.
