NOW IS NOT THE TIME TO LET IT BE THE STATUS QUO IN WASHINGTON DC. TIME FOR US AMERICANS TO WAKE UP THE POLITICIANS IN THIS COMING ELECTION YEAR, AND NOT BE BAMBOOZLED BY LAME DUCK EXCUSES!!! OUR MISSING SERVICEMEN ARE COUNTING ON YOU TO DELIVER THEM FROM HELL ON EARTH!!!!

This is an excerpt from an email from the National Alliance for Families Newsletter "Bits N' Pieces".

They're back or they will be on Tuesday September 2, 2003. That's when Congress is back in session and that is when we need to move H.Res 103.

We are still holding at 17 cosponsors and we need more to move this bill to a vote. A list of current cosponsors appears at the end of this email.

According to the legislation: "The select committee shall conduct a full investigation of all unresolved matters relating to any United States personnel unaccounted for from the Vietnam era, the Korean conflict, World War II, Cold War Missions, or Gulf War, including MIA's and POW's." A word about this legislation, the faster it is passed, the longer the investigation. If we are reading the legislation correctly, even if passed, this committee will end in January 2005. We really need to push for co-sponsors.

If you need a sample letter, Jennifer Martinez has provided an excellent one. To view it visit http://www.nationalalliance.org/leg/sample.htm.

You can also call your congressional representative at 1-877-762-8762. A listing of all Congressional Representatives, with phone and fax numbers may be found at http://www.nationalalliance.org/leg/list.htm.

IMPORTANT: When you send your letter make sure that you refer to the resolution. as H.RES 103, so it is not confused with other legislation with the same number.
We need to put out the same type of effort used to pass the Speicher Bill.
We need everyone calling their Congressional Representatives asking that they co_sponsor H.RES.103. If you’ve already called and faxed, call and fax again!
