Unit History:

Recording a unit history is vital to ensuring the past is never forgotten. Units can optimize their success by ensuring that an SOP for historical record keeping and submission has been established. The 54th Engineer Battalion created an SOP that is an excellent example for units to follow. SOP is available in (.doc) or (.pdf).

Unit histories can be emailed to the Engineer School Historian, uploaded to the Historian's AKO KC (Department of the Army only), or sent hard copy to the mailing address below.
