Maybe I am accomplishing something after all.....
I got the following in my e-mail..clear out of the blue.......
"At his Global Town Hall Meeting, on 29 June 2005, the Secretary of Defense' said he was not aware the Uniformed Services Former Spouses Act's (USFSPA) existence, in response to US Army LTC Larrabee's courageous request for support to correct its inequities. Taking the Secretary at his word, our mission is to bring him up to date, regarding the havoc this law plays on your life.
Some of us, are planning to meet with your Congressional Representatives, others will write to them, in hopes of discovering why USFSPA has been unnoticed for almost 25 years. We are urging Unit Commanders to formally and frequently brief their personnel, to forewarn them of the peril this law represents to each one of us, and we are asking your State Legislators to consider suspending UFSPA in their jurisdiction until there is conclusive evidence this is being done.
I sincerely apologize for not contacting you sooner. It is important for me to know if you are willing and able to participate in our operation, in some way, even if that means just being in touch. As a minimum, please advise, regarding your current contact and voter registration information, at your convenience.
Still serving proudly, XXXXX XXXX; President

Survey says? Respond or not?
I'd be happy if they wrote Rick Santorum and told him to do some real work for a change. Instead of just being a lap dog for President Bush.........
P.S. For CDR Salamander, now we know who the LTC is, .......
