Let us hope the American people will stand with us in the hope all Atomic veterans will receive the compensation and recognition we all deserve.

Children of Atomic Veterans
This web-site was set-up originally to search for fellow (Paul  Tibbets Group) 509 Bomb Wing nuclear test participants of "IVY".
It then  evolved into a "help" site to assist those people, who because of secrecy, know  little about the veteran's participation and the resultant medical consequences.  Hopefully this site can assist in the reconstruction of those lost years.
Included are sources of information for veterans and survivors in gaining  the benefits these veterans earned by virtue of their service to their  country.

The Navy Nuclear Weapons Association (NNWA) is a nationwide organization of military and civilian participants in the US Navy Department nuclear weapons program during the years 1946 to present.  Our 450 members meet annually in September at various locations across the US to reminisce with long-lost friends, provide support with veterans affairs and medical information, visit historical sites, enjoy quality entertainment in hospitable environs, and salute our departed.  The NNWA invites you to join our society of cold-War “Keepers of the Dragon”

USS Curtiss Atomic Marines This site was constructed for the 280 Marines that service aboard the USS Curtiss during the years 1948-1957.  To date 187 of those Marines have been located.  We are continuing our search for the missing Marines.  If you are one of the missing or know a Marine that served aboard the USS Curtiss, we would like to hear from you. The purpose of the site is to unite the Marines that were aboard the ship during the nuclear operations and to provide a source of information for them and their relatives and next of kin.  Everyone is welcome to visit the site.

The National Veterans Organization of America Inc., a not-for-profit corporation chartered by the State of Delaware. We are dedicated to the preservaton and enhancement of Veterans Benefits.
Basically, we are a group of veterans who are sick and tired of the way that veterans are treated by the US Department of Veterans Affairs. We are tired of of waiting for months or years for our claims to be dealt with by the VA. We are tired of the way the VA continues to deny those claims. We are tired of being butchered by medical residents in the VA Medical Facilities.
We intend to do something about it.

Trinty Atomic Site
On July 16, 1945, at 5:29:45am, the first atomic explosion was detonated at Trinity Site in New Mexico, U.S.A. It came less than 50 years after the discovery of radioactivity in 1896 and brought many threads of physics, technology and politics to a dramatic culmination. The man-made thunder that echoed off the Oscuro Mountains continues to reverbrate through the modern world
