U.S. Army Reserve



The 416th Theater Engineer Command is one of only two TECs in the Army, providing technical and tactical engineer support to U.S. forces.

The 416th TEC maintains mission command of engineer assets to provide full-spectrum engineering services in the supported theater, to include counter-mobility, mobility, survivability, and general engineering.

In addition to its 14 consecutive years of deployments in support of overseas contingency operations, the command has a national and global impact as it participates in humanitarian operations and joint training exercises throughout Central America, South America, and the Middle East. Domestically, the 416th TEC trains and equips units and Soldiers in 26 states west of the Mississippi River.

The 416th Engineer Brigade was formally activated, August 25,1950, in Chicago, Illinois.

The 416th has the distinction of being the only Army Reserve engineer brigade called to active duty during the Berlin Crisis, serving on active duty from October 1961 to August 1962 at Camp Polk, Louisiana.

In 1971, the 416th was reorganized as an Engineer Command and was responsible for Civil Engineer Support Planning for both the Third U.S. Army in Southwest Asia and the Eighth U.S. Army in Korea.

It was ordered to active duty, October 15, 1990, in support of Operations Desert Shield and Desert Storm. The unit spent 11 months in Southwest Asia, conducting large-scale engineer battlefield operations.

Following hostilities, the 416th focused on restoration and humanitarian efforts throughout Kuwait, support of refugees, and support to Operation Provide Comfort in northwest Iraq until the command was demobilized in May 1991.
