On October 30th, we pause in humble gratitude and recognition of the National Day of Remembrance (NDOR) for Nuclear Weapons Program Workers.
Nuclear Care Partners recognizes the contributions made by nuclear weapons workers and honors their commitment to building and maintaining the nation’s nuclear defense. The effects of working with nuclear materials and being exposed to various chemicals, toxins, and hazards had a significant cost in the health of these nuclear workers. For many years, the scope of these sacrifices had largely gone unrecognized, but today thousands of men and women have been diagnosed with workplace-related illnesses.
While we can never thank our Nation’s Atomic Heroes adequately for what they’ve done, we’re honored to commemorate their heroism and patriotism through our National Day of Remembrance celebrations.
