Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC)

Message from DEEOIC Director regarding the National Day of Remembrance

October 30th marks the National Day of Remembrance for all nuclear weapons workers. During War World II and the Cold War, thousands of workers served our nation by building its nuclear defense programs. Unfortunately, during their service many of these workers were exposed to radioactive and toxic substances that caused serious illness and death. The Department of Labor’s Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation would like to once again take this day as an opportunity to honor and recognize the great sacrifices made by all nuclear defense program workers and their families. Their service on behalf of our country should never be forgotten.
