Cold War Veterans Say WHAT?? Are you nuts?

Cold War Veterans, contact your elected officials immediately. This should really make
you angry.

DoD refuses a Cold War Service Medal because it would cost too much, duplication of
awards etc..and this would cost how much?

The Cold War Service Medal which we have been attempting to have authorized since the end of the Cold War, is in limbo gathering dust in the Armed Services Committees.

Now some empty headed namby pamby wants to hand out a medal for "courageous restraint"

Do not fight the enemy and we will give you a medal.

This has to be some kind of parody article, maybe a late April Fools. If not, all veterans should storm the hill to protest.
