This afternoon, I Faxed (and FedExed) a twenty page document to the US Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources. NOTE: Senator Debbie Stabenow sits on this committee.
I attached the letter that I wrote to the Committee, asking for their support and/or co-sponsorship of Senate bill S1891 Flying Tiger Flight 739 Act. This bill must move forward from their Committee!
Additionally, I sent copies of the S1891 bill, the full Starts and Stripes Article, the full passenger list of Flight 739, and a media list of coverage this mission is receiving. You may download the list here.
UPDATE: On August 13, 2019, I was interviewed by WILX TV News Channel 10 (NBC affiliate, Lansing) about this mission. It aired August 16, and was picked up and shown by CBS,NBC, ABC stations in 34 states including D.C
On August 16, I was interviewed via Skype by national radio personality “Joe Pags” in San Antonio TX. The interview was 14 minutes long, and reached 4 million viewers and listeners on radio, podcast, and TV.
I am hopeful that we are gaining momentum, as well as nationwide attention. I appreciate any support you are able to offer.
