This document was apparently mailed with the document on this website with the title [Dear Returnee, The Africa working committee of the still-unnamed "Returnees Association" is focusing on Southern Africa issues] dated February 20, 1967. It is a list of members of Congress to write in support of sanctions against Rhodesia. It indicates which are priority Congressman, a member of the House subcommittee on Africa, is very much aware of Southern African issues, and wrote a letter to the President urging the cancellation of the USS FD Roosevelt stop in Capetown [Cape Town] which would have subjected 200 Negro servicemen to apartheid. [Note: This document was written just as the Committee of Returned Volunteers was forming and may not have yet used that name. But it was written by the organization.]
