The battle was one of ideas and economics, where Western democracies set out to protect world stability and freedom from the constraints of communist control. Though neither side wanted to fight each other directly, the U.S. Army formed several units, starting at the U.S. Army Engineer Center at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, in the 1950s, recruiting combat engineers for the military occupational specialty of Atomic Demolition Munitions.
