Possibly Army Combat Engineers. Due to the very dark piping on collar and epaulettes.

There isn't any noticable contrast between the shoulders and their piping. With the resolution and lack of color it is hard to be certain. I agree, they are most likely engineers, but given the quality of image, I wouldn't rule out artillery or armored infantry. The two outside men are Privates, lacking any arm insignia. The other man is an unidentifiable enlisted rank. The combination of uniform models indicates a photo date no earlier than 1942.
