POW/MIA

The House of Representatives is actually trying to do something about the POW/MIA issue.
There is a bill H.Res 111 to set up a select committee to oversee all POW/MIA activity
A part of the bill
Sec. 2. 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, Persian Gulf War, Operation Iraqi Freedom, or Operation Enduring Freedom, including MIA's and POW's missing and captured.

You can read the entire bill here

As of today the bill has 206 cosponsors read the list here

Contact your representatives, ask them to cosponsor this important legislation if they are not
already show on the list.

Ask them to push to get the bill out of committee and to vote for passage when it reaches the
House Floor.

Our country must do everything possible to determine where and demand return of all
POW/MIA's or their remains from ALL conflicts.

Give closure to the families and loved ones who still do not know the final story of these brave men and women.
