Photo Gallery: National OWCP Remembrance Quilt
(July 2, 2013)
Rachel Leiton, director of the Office Workers' Compensation Programs' Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation and Gary Steinberg, director of the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs, take a moment to observe the quilt during its showcase near the Hall of Honor in the Labor Department's Frances Perkins Building.
Each individually-crafted square honoring a nuclear weapons worker includes the individual's name as well as the location and years served at a nuclear facility.
A sign describing the Remembrance Quilt also notes the National Day of Remembrance for Nuclear Weapons Program Workers on October 30.
