“It’s so important for these workers to stay connected with their former colleagues,” said Lori Shanks, Community Outreach Manager at Nuclear Care Partners. “It’s an honor to host both educational and social events for these men and women who did so much for our country. They are an important part of Colorado’s history and NCP is proud to bring them together and assist them in any way we can.”
Since 1945, more than 600,000 men and women have served in more than 300 nuclear weapons facilities throughout the United States. Collectively, they built more than 70,000 nuclear weapons for the country’s nuclear defense. Many of these workers paid a high price for their service – developing debilitating, and sometimes fatal, illnesses due to radiation and toxic chemical exposure. Nuclear Care Partners offers these workers no-cost benefits guidance and in-home care.
