The/Studio: Introduce yourself. Tell our readers a little bit about who you are!

Eddie: I am 1SG (RET) Eddie Denney, During the cold war period there were Special weapons platoon’s stationed with the Engineer Units in USAREUR these platoon’s had 2 low yield Nuclear weapon’s that were called a SADAM (Small Atomic Demolition Muntion) and a MADAM (Medium Atomic Demolition Munition). In approximately 1974 these units were removed from the Batallion’s and placed in 2 Separate Company’s, One in V Corps (The 567th Eng Co ADM) an One in VII Corp (275th Eng Co ADM). We wore a patch depicting the units on the breast pocket of our uniform’s. In approx. 1988 these units were disbanded an the weapons were destroyed. There are a lot of individuals wanting these patch’s,so if they are  on your site you should receive a lot of orders. All of this has been declassified an now is public record.
