Recognition of US Veterans who Served in Latin America sign now

Prior to the U.S. invasion of Panama in 1989, thousands of military personnel served in Latin America. Although their actions have never been classified as either being involved directly in combat nor in combat-related situations, many of them put their lives on the line for the protection of Democracy in host countries. Today many of those veterans suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Still, others were exposed to unnamed chemicals, pesticides and herbicides.

We are asking the United States Government to officially recognize those that served in South and Central America in both combat units and combat-support units. Moreover, to welcome them home. It has been a long time coming.

Because many activities that occurred during those pre-Panama invasion years may still be considered sensitive and/or classified, we are solely asking for the acknowledgment and recognition of those that served in s specific region of our hemisphere under unusually trying circumstances.

Please consider setting one day aside, some time in the near future and perhaps recognizing those that served in South and Central America with some form of award. Perhaps calling it the Latin American Expeditionary Medal or Ribbon, or something of that nature. Thank you for you consideration.

Sincerely,
