Veterans, supporters, and family members what else can you do? Today Monday call CSPAN and ask them to cover this hearing.
Call your US Representative and ask them to send staffer to hearing. Call your local television station and news station: Tell them of your watch party with other veterans and the location of your watch party. Have the local media contact a Local Desert Storm Veteran as a special local issue.
This is your time to stand up and support all Desert Storm Veterans who have been ill since 190-91. What an admirable thing to do leading into Memorial Day weekend.
