2022 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.

2022 marks the 14th 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.

This year we will host a virtual ceremony on October 28th that you can watch from the comfort of your home. As a special means of recognition to all of those who protected our nation, we will be offering a 3′ x 5′, Made in America, United States flag to those who register for the ceremony. More details are below.

The virtual ceremony will feature guest speakers including the two Senate Co-Sponsors of the 2022 National Day of Remembrance Resolution. We will end the commemorative event with a memorial candle lighting ceremony and the sharing of the names of those no longer with us.
