Udall, Alexander Introduce Bipartisan Resolution Honoring Cold War Nuclear Weapons Workers
"Our Cold War heroes deserve the upmost recognition for helping the United States prevail, especially those who put their lives on the line working in uranium mines and nuclear-weapons facilities across Colorado. We owe Colorado's more than 6,700 Cold War patriots — and tens of thousands more across the nation — a debt of gratitude," Udall said. "This National Day of Remembrance will honor their sacrifices and remind our nation to uphold our commitment to these unsung heroes, including ensuring they receive the benefits they deserve. We must never forget their work."
"Tennesseans played a major role in winning the Cold War, working with little-understood hazardous materials to build our nation’s nuclear weapons," Alexander said. "As a result, nearly 15,000 Tennesseans have filed claims for compensation, many of whom worked with radiation and harmful substances. It's those Tennesseans, and those all around the country, whose patriotism and sacrifice we seek to honor with this day of remembrance."
Congress has passed resolutions marking a national day of remembrance for nuclear weapons program workers since 2009.
