The border of BLUE and GREY indicates that the original 104th Engineers were first organized as part of the 29th Division during World War I, this division being known as the "BLUE and GREY."
The Oak Tree shown is what is known in Heraldry as "An Oak Tree, Fructed" or an Oak Tree bearing fruit or acorns. This fruited Oak Tree is the principal feature of the shields of the Provinces in France in which the unit served during World War I. The unit served in France eleven months. Five months of front-line service is indicated by the five diagonal red stripes or bondlets, the six months served after the Armistice are indicated by the six white bondlets.
The motto attached means in plain English "IT MUST BE DONE", indicating that engineers never shirk a job, no matter how hard or seemingly impossible it is.
