On November 16, 2011
The 113th Congress Passed
Senate Resolution 330
Establishing a National Day of Remembrance
January 27th, 2014, marked the 63rd anniversary of the first nuclear weapons test in Nevada. It was also the Third Annual “Day of Remembrance for Downwinders." There was an Interfaith Service honoring Downwinders held in downtown Salt Lake City.
With RECA and Downwinders Day, there has finally been some recognition and responsibility taken by the government. Unfortunately, that isn't enough for closure for the thousands of families that have forever been altered by damage caused by radiation fallout.
