Over time, we will be including more information about how you can contact your representatives about issues related to American Merchant Marine Veterans. We will include suggested wording to send to each congressperson. Click Here
There are resources that will help us to look up – and to contact our representatives.
– To Call Your Congress Person, Click Here to Find Your Congress Person by Zip Code
– To Send an Email, Go to the Navy League website to send a letter by email to your Congressional Representatives
The Navy League has made it possible for us to invite you to their website to send a letter directly to your Congressional Representatives – this action will take you to another website. Use the included letter as a Base. We encourage you to edit as desired, and add any personal views you may have about how this issue affects you, your community, and our national security. We urge you to add a personal touch–it will make the letter stronger! Please delete any information that you do not wish to include, such as being a member of the Navy League – they do not require you to join.
We will post here the bill numbers, a review of the issues, and more information for each bill. We will share news of the progress for each bill.
We will also research and share other methods of getting more grass roots support using social media.
We can get support from those who are sympathetic to the Merchant Mariner’s plight, even though they might not qualify as members of our group.
