Combat engineers are the true tip of the spear. Engineers walk in front of the infantry to sweep for mines and ieds. Engineers are the first off the boat in an amphib assault to blow the obstacles off the beach so the infantry can get ashore. Engineers build bridges, bunkers, buildings, obstacles, etc.

we walk in front with a metal detector praying we don't becoming a triggering device tester, but rather it be us hurt than a fellow Marine.
we build stuff.
we destroy stuff.
we are FOB *****es ("can you build us...")
we specialize in enabling movement of assault forces through breaching
we block enemy advances through counter-mobility and force protection
