The Good News is that Rep. Dan Burton of Indiana has added his name to the list of sponsors of HCR 158, which would make it illegal to FORCE Americans to serve under the U.N. Seems like a pretty non-controversial bill to me.
The Bad News is that there are only 9 sponsors, meaning 427 Congressmen either don't care or haven't heard from you. If we had 100 sponsors, this bill would come out of committee.
Please write to your Congressman and ask him/her to co-sponsor HCR 158.

Condemns the deployment of U.S. military personnel in the service of the United Nations (UN) in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia as a violation of both the Constitution and Federal laws.
Calls upon the President to: (1) take total command of all such personnel participating in UN operations and ensure that they wear only the U.S. uniform without any UN items and carry only U.S. issued military identity cards; and (2) take all steps necessary to resolve all existing conflicts with such personnel who have refused to serve under foreign commanders in foreign uniforms, consistent with the Constitution and principles of this resolution.
