2020 OFFICIAL COLD WAR PATRIOTS 
NATIONAL DAY OF REMEMBRANCE


Every October, the Official Cold War Patriots National Day of Remembrance (NDR) 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 National Day of Remembrance for Nuclear Weapons Program Workers. Our community was saddened by Janine’s passing in 2009, but we remain deeply grateful for her dedication to creating a day that recognizes this group of dedicated workers. The U.S. Senate first passed a resolution to create an NDR in October 2009. Every year since then, CWP has worked to successfully pass the NDR resolution.

2020 marked the 12th anniversary of the Cold War Patriots National Day of Remembrance. This year we hosted a virtual ceremony to recognize our living legends and remember the fallen heroes.

Thank you to all who were able to attend the virtual ceremony and to our guest speakers who participated in the ceremony. We will come together next year in honor of the 13th Official Cold War Patriots National Day of Remembrance.
