Downwinders Day

January 26, 2012 11:37 a.m.

Today (Jan. 27) is the first annual National Downwinders Day. Downwinders are the folks in western states who were affected by radiation exposure from nuclear test sites in Nevada. Last year the U-S Senate voted unanimously to honor downwinders with a special day of recognition.
