2 veterans part of atomic bomb test reunite after 60 years apart

Two veterans who parachuted into a blast zone to study the effects of radiation from an atomic bomb reunited Friday after more than 60 years apart.

Albert Tseu and Roy Campbell were three miles away from the nuclear bomb test in Nevada in 1952, and are believed to be the last two survivors of 110 paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne.

News Center 7’s James Buechele was in Miamisburg Friday where he attended a ceremony honoring the veterans.

“I was just so overwhelmed. I can’t believe after all these years we were able to see each other. We shared the same experiences, you know,” said Tseu.

“Very excited on that because I didn’t really believe I was going to find anybody else out there, I’ll be truthful,” said Campbell.

The power of the bomb that was tested on these two veterans was twice as powerful as the one dropped on Hiroshima, Japan back in World War II.
