3B. Received one of the following; the SSBN Deterrent Patrol Insignia,
Combat Infantryman Badge (CIB),

Verification of these criteria requires a copy of the Discharge Papers or the Separation Form (DD Form 214). There is always a possibility of an omission on the discharge papers or separation form and a veteran may request a correction of records by submitting GSA Form 180. Also, if there is a serious question regarding a veterans’ eligibility, we can submit it to VFW National for their review and consideration. We do believe that veterans who served in Europe during the Cold War (Sep’45 – Dec’91) may soon be eligible should the Cold War Medal recently proposed be approved by congress.
