The Combat Engineering Corps is greeted by a jubilant little fellow after completing their treacherous trek for their gray berets.
The Combat Engineering Corps symbol features a sword on a defensive tower with a blast halo on the background.
The Combat Engineering Corps official motto is “Rishonim Tamid” (“Always First”). Its unofficial motto is “We’ll do the hard stuff today, the impossible tomorrow.”
The corps’ roles include mobility assurance, road breaching, defense and fortifications, counter-mobility of enemy forces, construction and destruction under fire, sabotage, explosives, bomb disposal, purifying nuclear, biological and chemical threats, and special engineering missions, which include identifying and demolishing smuggling tunnels.
