Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the country’s armed forces. Many people visit cemeteries and memorials, particularly to honor those who have died in military service.

Today, we want to pay our respects to the Fallen Soldiers, Airmen and Sailors who died during or after participating in the 1977 – 1980 Enewetak Atoll Atomic Cleanup Mission.

Please take a moment to review the list of our Known Fallen Atomic Cleanup Veterans in silent respect for their humanitarian sacrifice for the dri-Enewetak while serving in our armed forces.

If you know of any Fallen Humanitarians from the Atomic Cleanup Mission, who are not listed, please add their names and known information in the form.
