I pretty sure this is a US Army unit crest. I'm wondering what battalion this is?

Looks very close to 109th engineers battalion.
Thanks,
I suspect it's a combat engineer crest. The army literally has over 2,000 different designs all based on the many Battalions the make up army.

I think identity is solved. Not sure why the Latin wording is missing, but I believe it's the 109th Combat Engeneers, 34th Infantry Division.
This unit has a distinguished military history during world war 2. It landed in North Africa during world war 2 and took part in the battle at Kasserin Pass under George Patton. In 1943 this unit helped in the invasion of Italy.
Makes you wonder who wore this?
