Our amendment to the NDAA would require the Department of Defense to design and produce a military service medal to honor retired and former members of the Armed Forces who are radiation-exposed veterans. This would include members of our Armed Forces who
participated in above-ground nuclear weapons testing; were part of the U.S. military occupation forces in or around Hiroshima and Nagasaki before 1946; or were held as POWs in or near Hiroshima or Nagasaki. This amendment unanimously passed the House
last year by a vote of 424-0.
