Another Misidentified VN-Made Pocket Patch??

This Engineer patch has been identified as both the 88th Engineer Battalion and the 16th Engineer Battalion.  First, the 88th Engineer Battalion was never in the Vietnam War and the 16th Engineer Battalion was located in Germany, again, not Vietnam.  The only other choice is the 8th Engineer Battalion (the Eight Balls).  I have another 8th Engineer Battalion pocket patch, not from Vietnam, that uses the Eight Ball in the design.  In my opinion, the VN-made patch was made for the 8th Engineer Battalion.  Comments?
