Location: Washington DC

U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today announced Senate passage of S.Res.519, a Senate resolution marking Oct. 30, 2012, as a National Day of Remembrance for Nuclear Weapon Program Workers. The Day of Remembrance honors the thousands of men and women who supported the nation's nuclear efforts during the Cold War.

"Tennesseans played a major role in winning the Cold War by their contributions to building the nation's nuclear deterrent. Many Americans labored behind the scenes working with little-understood hazardous materials, but more in Tennessee than any other state. I am pleased we can honor their sacrifice with this day of remembrance."

Alexander introduced the resolution with Senators Jeff Bingaman (D-N.M.), Maria Cantwell (D-Wa.), Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), Mike Crapo (R-Idaho), Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Mark Udall (D-Colo.), Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), and Tom Udall (D-N.M.).
