Recommended Posts

Looking for some help to ID this one. My friend in Baghdad gave it to me & said it had something to do with rewarding Iraqi women for their sacrifices during the war effort. Any ideas or information?? Thanks in advance

Issued to appriciate Iraqi women for their role and donation to support the Iraq-Iran War, Saddam's signiture.

Case is a 1'' by 1'' tan or brown plastic 2 piece box:

1983 issue;

Looks like it is missing the bow tie type mounting pin???

Hope this will help a little for your Medal:

God Bless

All the ones that I have came with the little case two piece tan plastic box: When I was in Baghdad, Iraq you could pick these up for $1.00-$3.00 dollars. Now they are poppping up on the internet for $20.00. dollars.

Its as if Saddam gave them out like water: for a small donation for the war effort.

Pretty prominent hooters for a woman on a middle east medal...

I guess certain sections of the population would get a bit angry about that....

I suspect this was made in Italy- at least some of them. The labour medal certainly was.

Thank you

Hi Lorenzo,

I did not bring back any extras. I will be holding on to my flag and modest medal collection. Hopefully my kids or grandchildren will be into them! :cheers:

That would be the best thing. I might put my collection in my will to go to some sort of Iraqi Campaign War Museum. For the world to see in remembrance of Iraqi Freedom Vets. My children realy don't understand collecting Militaria and might part with it. I would want all of it to stay together for others to see a better understanding of Iraqs military history.

Thank you

Lorenzo
