Dutch Cold War Veterans

Our friends and bothers-and-sisters-in arms in the Netherlands are doing things right and proper.

On November 20, 2010 KOVOM The Dutch Cold War Veterans in cooperation with the Dutch MoD
will celebrate a National Cold War Remembrance Day. The first in Dutch Military History.

Expected to attend are approximately 250 men and women Cold War Veterans, during this ceremoney
several members will be presented with the Dutch Cold War Medal.

We are proud of our fellow Cold War Veterans and wish them well, and that they have a very large
and eventful day and evening.

Now if we can just convince Congress and DoD to authorize a Cold War Service Medal to our Cold Warriors, possibly our next goal will be reached; a Cold War Veterans Recognition Day.
