Terry Paggi started this petition to James Inhofe (R - OK)

To the Honorable Senator Inhofe,

Thousands of U.S. Veterans served during the Vietnam War Era (01Nov1955 - 30Apr1975). While some who served were awarded the National Defense Service Medal (NDSM) many fell outside of its date of issue (01Jan1961-14Aug1974). It is inappropriate  to be called a Vietnam Era Veteran but to be denied the NDSM to those who were either drafted or enlisted. I ask that you extend the issuance dates of the NDSM to coincide with the dates of the Vietnam War.
