U.S. Senator Pat Toomey is partnering with Senator Dan Laughlin and Representative Parke Wentling to honor Cold War-era veterans.

Senator Toomey is working with the U.S. Department of Defense to provide certificates for United States veterans and Department of Defense civilian employees who reside in Erie County for their honorable service during the Cold War.

Anyone who worked for the U.S. Government at any time during the Cold War era—Sept. 2, 1945 through Dec. 26, 1991—is eligible, provided their service to the country was faithful and honorable. National Guard and Reserve Soldiers are eligible. Contractors and volunteers are not eligible.

Those who are currently active duty military or civilian employees of the U.S. government are also eligible if they had at least one day of honorable service during the Cold War-era.
