New Petition for Cold War Medal

I started a petition on the White House petition site We The People. Please sign it here Cold War Medal Petition
 
We need to have 5000 signatures by Oct 22. Please share this with everyone you know and ask them to
sign this petition. Remember to have your spouse/partner and children sign it.

You will have to start an account and log in but it is  quick and easy. Please help us in our quest. We have waited too long.

2011 is the 20th anniversary of the end of the Cold War. Let this be the year to remember, recognize and
honor our veterans.

I am sure someone will mention the Cold War Certificate. You must know that the certificate makes no mention of military service, anyone who worked for the government in any manner is eligible. In the 13 years the certificate has been in existence only about 3.5 million have applied for it.
And, you can not pin a certificate to your chest.
