To the Editor:
Cold War veterans are those who served honorably in the armed forces in the Cold War era between September 1945 and December 1991. They represent a wide assortment of veterans, including Korean and Vietnam War vets, those who served on remote mountaintops, flew reconnaissance missions and trained in the swamps and deserts.
A certificate has been issued to these brave individuals, but the American Cold War Veterans Service Organization is pushing for a day of remembrance on May 1 and the Cold War Service Medal to accompany the certificate. The movement has been blocked and stalled in Congress. Any letters, emails or calls to your local representative in support of this cause would be greatly appreciated.
