Cold War veterans throughout New York are eligible for a new special honor thanks to State Senator Joseph Addabbo.

The New York State Cold War Certificate, created for those who served in all branches of military during the 46-year standoff between the U.S. and the Soviet Union, is available to any New York resident who served in the military and was honorably discharged between the end of WWII on Sept. 2, 1945 and the dissolution of the Soviet Union on Dec. 26, 1991.

“The Cold War was an edgy time for Americans, and those in the armed forces were the ones charged with protecting us and protecting the country,” Addabbo, the Ranking Member of the Senate Veterans Committee said. “This recognition will further validate their hard work, bravery and selflessness.”

The certificate states: “In recognition of your service during the period of the Cold War, 2 September 1945 – 26 December 1991, in protecting peace and stability for this Nation, the people of the state of New York are forever grateful.”

Applicants can obtain the certificate directly from the New York State Division of Military and Naval Affairs or Addabbo stated constituents can contact any of his three district offices for assistance.

For more information on how to apply for the certificate, veterans can contact Senator Addabbo, visit the New York State Division of Military and Naval Affairs awards website here or call 518-591-5296.
