The 35th Engineer Brigade (Corps) is the largest senior command in the Missouri National Guard. During peacetime, it serves as the headquarters for the following commands: 35th Infantry Division in Cape Girardeau, 110th Engineer Battalion (Wheeled) in Kansas City, 203rd Engineer Battalion (Combat) (Heavy) in Joplin, 1138th Engineer Battalion in St. Louis and the 1140th Engineer (Corps) (Wheeled) in Cape Girardeau.

Throughout the year, the 35th Engineer Brigade units work on Innovative Readiness ball fields, basketball courts, walking trails and drainage operations, as well as construction operations and renovations for local governments, parks and recreation departments and not-for-profit civic organizations.

In addition to construction operations, the brigade continues to serve as the Corps engineer for I Corps at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington. This relationship has proven very productive since 1983. As the I Corps engineer, the brigade participates in several war fighter exercises throughout the year, including OCONUS exercises such as Yama Sakura in Japan, Ulchi Focus Lens in Korea and Cobra Gold in Thailand.
