A Social Network for Navy Veterans of the United States of America
On April 28. 2015 Congressman Steve Israel(D NY-3); as he has for the last several years, along with Congressman David Jolly (R-FL 13) and seven other cosponsors introduce H.R. 2067 The Cold War Service Medal Act 2015. This bill would authorize DoD to issue the Cold War Service Medal to those who served between Sep 1945 and Dec 1991.
This bill has been sent to the House Armed Services Committee for consideration. Last year a similar bill went to the committee and just sat there till the end of the year with no action.
Please contact your Congressman/Congresswoman asking them to cosponsor H.R. 2067 and push to have the bill brought out of committee and brought to the floor for a full vote.
It is very important that members of Congress see that their is strong support from veterans on this issue. So please contact them and do it ofter, go to their website to send email quick and easy, phone the local office as well as the Washington, DC office, fax, mail make a personal visit to their office(either the local office close to you or even better the DC office).
Also ask both of your Senators to introduce similar legislation in the Senate. We must push on all fronts and hope that the support overwhelms DoD.
