2019 Official Cold War Patriots

Celebrating The 11th Anniversary

COLD WAR PATRIOTS 2019
NATIONAL DAY OF REMEMBRANCE


Every October, the official Cold War Patriots National Day of Remembrance honors the men and women working in the U.S. nuclear weapon and uranium industries, and recognizes those who are no longer with us. Often working in secrecy, these patriots have been instrumental in the protection of our nation — from WWII to today.

The Cold War Patriots (CWP) community is grateful for the efforts of Janine Anderson, a former nuclear weapons worker, who led the effort to create the first NDR. Our community was saddened by Janine’s passing in 2009, but we remain deeply grateful for her dedication to creating this day that recognizes this group of dedicated workers. The U.S. Senate first passed a resolution to create a NDR in October 2009. Every year since then, CWP has worked to successfully pass the NDR resolution.

2019 marks the 11th anniversary of Cold War Patriots National Day of Remembrance… and we invite all nuclear weapons and uranium industry workers and their family members to help us recognize our living legends and remember the fallen heroes.

Join us to recognize and remember with a variety of special commemorative events across the nation. At each event enjoy guest speakers, a candle lighting ceremony, entertainment, lunch, and more.
