Call to Action!!!

Subject: Important POW MIA Legislation
Hi Bob,

The Coalition of Families is working with Blair Bjellos in Senator Dean Heller’s office to move the Bring Our Heroes Home Act (S-120) through committee, to the floor and ultimately to passage. In case you haven’t been following the bill, S-120 is the 115th Congress’ version of the comprehensive declassification legislation that former Senator Ayotte introduced in the 114th Congress—before she lost her bid for re-election.

This bill addresses the need to declassify documents related to POW/MIAs in a way that none before has attempted to do. It would be a significant shift in the effort to account for our missing service personnel.

I have attached a letter I’ve written generically to our community of advocates. It explains S-120 in a bit more detail and it lays out what we can do at this time to help turn the bill into law. We have made it simple. I hope you will read the letter, then articulate your support for the bill. After working this issue for 25 years, I am confident that, if passed, S-120 will make a tremendous difference to the accounting effort. It will bring transparency. It will help us make sure the government is doing its job. 

Thank you for your support for the men who gave so much. They and their families deserve answers.

Sincerely, Donna
