About Us

Welcome to the 547th Engineer Battalion (CBT) website! We hope you enjoy your visit here! This site was constructed and is maintained for the memory of those fellow Bridge Builders who have passed on and for the enjoyment of those Bridge Builders who are still among us. If you were ever assigned to the 547th (1944 – 1991), or were a relative of a Soldier assigned to the battalion, you are eligible for membership in the 547th Engineer Battalion (CBT) Association. We meet annually for a reunion at a different designated location somewhere in the 50 states for the express purpose of seeing each other, enjoying each other’s company and re-kindling friendships and memories. This website will help us to stay in touch with each other between reunions and to share memories as well as stories and pictures that have long been tucked away on shelves or in boxes and need to now see the light of day again for the enjoyment of the members. Please enjoy our site and if you’d like to get further information on the 547th Engineer Battalion (CBT) Association and how to become a member please contact John Hetzel via email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
