Ask President Obama

This Sunday George Stephanopolous will be interviewing President Obama. The ABC website
has a link that you can use to send a question to ask the President. This is another chance to
get the American Cold War Veterans, Inc and our quest for a Cold War Service/Victory Medal
some national attention.

Here is the link to the ABC website

I asked the following question:

Mr. President:

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the 17th anniversary
of the end of the Soviet Union, and thus the Cold War.

During the election campaign you twice stated you thought a Cold War Victory Medal was something you supported. Will you this year issue an Executive Order to establish and have
issued a Cold War Victory (or Service) Medal to all those who served honorably from Sept. 1945
to Dec. 1991?

Thank you,

Jerald Terwilliger, Chairman
American Cold War Veterans, Inc
