Manhattan Project VeteranProject Worker/Staff

Ramon C. Gómez was from El Rancho, New Mexico and was one of many New Mexicans employed at Los Alamos. He cleaned contaminated tools that arrived at the lab. Like him, Gómez’s four brothers also did this work, and, like him, they later died of cancer. The Gómez brothers’ family and friends believe their deaths were linked to their work on the Manhattan Project.
