Members of the American Cold War Veterans, we must act now!
The following is from contact in Sen. Snowe's office when I asked about chances now that the super committee failed.
Jerry – the failure of the supercommittee certainly won't help matters, but the language is in the Senate bill, so it will at least see a debate between the House and Senate in their conference process. How it comes out is anyone's guess, and will have much to do with how much (or how little) your House of Representatives supporters have weighed in with the House Armed Services Committee staff and members… Things are not going to get much better in the future, I'm afraid – the supercommittee failure is likely to affect DOD budgets over the next 10 years!
So it is very important that we continue to press the House for support. Please keep up contacting your
Congressman/woman to ensure that SEC. 581 of the Senate NDAA remain intact. This is our best shot at
getting the medal.
You can contact them by using either congres.org http://www.congress.org/ scroll down to letters to leaders and click
on Write your lawmaker, then on next page enter your zip code to find your Rep. write your letter and send it right
to their desk. Or you can go to your Reps. website and send an email.
