Cold Warrior

It all started as a lark

A few years ago, I stumbled upon a link that lead to the Cold War Recognition Certificate Program. It's a pretty meaningless certificate: Basically anyone who served in the military or in federal government service from Sept 2, 1945 to Dec 26, 1991 is entitled to one.

Here's the kicker

A set amount of certificates were created, and once they're gone, they're gone. But until then, there is an office in Fort Knox, KY that is staffed by people whose only job is to issue these certificates.

As a conservative, I felt it was my duty to help fulfill this mission and release these Army personell for a more important job. Of course, with recent events, it seem like this certificate is becoming more relevant.

So, if you'd like to help close this office, and recieve a "suitable for framing" Cold War certificate, you can head over to the HRC site. Due to security concerns, you can no longer order it online - you'll have to print and mail in a form. Of course, their sites display as insecure because they only use DoD certificate authorities (which I won't be installing!)

Here is mine:
