Introduced in House (03/25/2010)

Expresses the sense of the House of Representatives that: (1) the current policy that prohibits sending a presidential letter of condolence to the family of a member of the Armed Forces who has died by suicide only serves to perpetuate the stigma of mental illness that pervades the Armed Forces; and (2) the President, as Commander-in-Chief, should overturn the policy and treat all military families equally.
