New Medal Would Honor 'Atomic Vets'

Congressman Todd Tiahrt joined with Sen. Pat Roberts to introduce legislation honoring armed forces members exposed to atomic testing between 1945 and 1963.

The Atomic Veterans Medal Act would create a special military service medal to honor atomic veterans.

The 4th Dist. Representative called the medal long over due and said it is one small way to honor their sacrifices and show our nation's appreciation.
