Original Vietnam War era patch made in the US circa. 1960s-1970s
Merrowed edge patches were introduced in 1968 and were increasingly worn in-country as the war continued. This style of patch was worn through the BDU era, into the early 2000s until being replaced by UCP/ACU insignia.
As a result of the ever-increasing US presence in Vietnam, the 20th Engineer Brigade was reactivated on 1st May 1967 and then sent to Vietnam in August of the same year. The Brigade consisted of 13,000 personnel who, while in-country, cleared more than half a million acres of forest and constructed roads and bridges nationwide for the mobility of US forces. The brigade was finally pulled out of Vietnam in 1971 during the withdrawal of US troops.
