*Update October 30, 2017 | Editorial:
One of the problems with the Cold War Victory Medal Act of 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011 and 2012 is that DOD believes this medal would duplicate other service medals or would cost too much to research or distribute.
We are currently working through the legislative process (2017/2018) to initiate a new Bill to be presented to Congress, the Senate, and hopefully on to President Donald Trump for approval.
I furthermore propose in addition to this recognition medal, congress approve the excluded National Defense Service Medal dates (1976-1991) as well.
Honor our Veterans!
Standing fierce in the face of an overwhelming enemy, these Veterans answered the call -- drafted or volunteered -- as America needed its guardians of freedom, and they were there.
The U.S. Government has never formally recognized the Cold War or its veterans.
"Many Americans died in operations that remain even to this day unacknowledged that entailed heroism and loss that have yet to be revealed to a grateful nation. We should remember and honor those who sacrifice is brought about a victorious conclusion to the Cold War, to the enormous betterment of the United States and the world"
Dr. Donald C. Winter
Secretary of the Navy October 2006
Because a considerable part of the Cold War was covert, 20 million veterans served without fanfare or appreciation.
Cold War Veterans have been denied respect, remembrance, and recognition for too long.
It is past time for our country to say "Thank you".
We are here to change that. By awarding a Cold War Service Medal to Veterans, they shall no longer be ignored.
We are asking for your help and would like you to write, email or call to request that President Obama honor his pledge to Cold War Veterans and use an Executive Order to create this medal, finally recognizing these deserving veterans.
