Here’s a suggested plan of action – tweet @jfranksmw or @hammarolivia if you have questions. You can also download the entire PLAN OF ACTION as a PDF.

GLOBALLY, let’s focus on positive.  Remember the word “disappointed” has a lot of power.


WHAT: We need to tweet every member of the Committee (click here for Foreign Affairs Twitter  handles)

WHY:  We want as many members as possible to be at the hearing so that it has maximum effect.

HOW: Something like “Pls committ to attending #PTSD Hearing on 10/1 – we cannot leave a man behind. #bringbackourmarine  #marineheldinmexico”


WHAT:  Get those on House Foreign Relations to PUBLICLY commit to co-sponsoring H.Res. 620

WHY:   Foreign Relations controls authorization for foreign aid funding and unanimous support would send a powerful message

HOW:   Tweet the below members something like “Will you stand for “leave no man behind” and co-sponsor HRes. 620? #hres620 #ptsdhearing #marineheldinmexico #bringbackourmarine”

or: “I’m really dissapointed you haven’t taken a stand for Andrew by cosponsoring H.Res. 620 – we MUST stand behind him #hres620 #ptsdhearing #marineheldinmexico #bringbackourmarine”
