Co-Sponsors -- As of today, H.Res. 111 has 77 co-sponsors.  We thank you all for your hard work on H.Res 111.   Your efforts are paying off.    A special tip of the hat to all the folks in Minnesota.   That state has 100% co-sponsorship for H.Res 111.

However, our work is not finished.   H.Res 111 needs many more co-sponsors.    You know the routine by now.   Write, call, fax, email, vist the local congressional office.   There is a toll free number to contact your congressional representative.  That number is 1-866-727-4894.   Ask for your congressional representative.    Once you are connected to their office ask to speak with the person who handles Military/POW/MIA matters.
