The National Day of Remembrance honors men and women for their service and unwavering dedication to keep the United States safe through the construction of nuclear weapons. Following World War II, the Cold War prompted a nuclear arms race from 1947-1991. Thousands of American citizens were invited to take part in highly classified government work, later identified as the manufacture and assembly of parts for atomic bombs.
Many atomic energy workers unknowingly worked with hazardous chemicals and radiation without consent or proper protective gear during this construction. As a result, countless numbers of individuals are now sick or are no longer with us today because of occupational induced illnesses.
On this day, the sacrificial work displayed by atomic energy workers, and those no longer with us, is remembered.
