Of course he was a war hero.
Gordon, operating the Tumbler, was instrumental in saving the whole of Gotham and it's inhabitants from Ra's who was hell-bent on destroying the City with his microwave emitter.
In the year between BB and TDK both Gordon and Batman worked together to wage a two man war against serious organised crime in Gotham, specifically the Mob, and were successful.
He saved Gotham from a maniac and then eradicated serious crime, what more of a war do you want him to fight? LOL.
