History of CWP
HISTORY OF COLD WAR PATRIOTS
Cold War Patriots (CWP) is a membership organization providing recognition and resources to the nuclear weapons and uranium workers by connecting them with the cash compensation and health care they have earned. Membership is open to anyone who supports the mission of this group of people.
A small group of dedicated individuals from Professional Case Management (PCM) formed CWP in the spring of 2008, advised by the CWP Advisory Committee. As the leading home-health agency serving this group, PCM recognized a need to bring together advocates and nuclear weapons workers from throughout the country to advocate for their benefits under the Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act (EEOICPA).
The CWP Advisory Committee meets regularly and is made up of respected nuclear weapons and uranium worker advocates and subject-matter experts. These committee members are dedicated to helping workers and family members receive benefits they have earned. Our organization has put together a nationwide network of professionals and advocates who can help with EEOICPA and Radiation Exposure Compensation Act (RECA) claims and benefit questions.
In 2009, CWP lobbied successfully for the US Congress to designate the official Cold War Patriots’ National Day of Remembrance™ that the nation celebrates annually on October 30th. We offer local events, such as resource fairs and town-hall meeting, and publish a quarterly newsletter. CWP also provides a Help Center to support workers, former workers and their families with questions and share helpful information by calling (888) 903-8989.
If you are not already a member, please join us so that we can help guide you through the EEOICPA process and ensure you receive the benefits you have earned.
