Iraq Vets returns their medals
“I’m returning my National Defense Medal because I truly believe that I did not help defend my nation and I’m returning my Global War on Terrorism Medal because I do not believe that I helped defeat terrorism in Iraq. As an American and a soldier I ask for your loyalty to the true needs of the brave men and women serving our country while suffering countless injustices due to greed, corruption and incompetence."
-Josh Gaines, Iraq War veteran, received the medals for the year long tour of duty he served while a member of the Wisconsin National Guard.
