Nila’s husband worked at Rocky Flats nuclear weapons production facility and he died of cancer. Once he came home after having been exposed to high levels of radiation and his clothes were taken. He came home in a set of long underwear the facility provided him with and Nila saved the shirt he came home in. She’s holding up that shirt in this photo.
