Military Training

Call and E-mail Today: Ask Your Members of Congress to
Co-sponsor the BEST Practices Act (S. 587/H.R. 1095)

We need your voice! Please call your House representative today. You don’t need to know who your representative is, and it is easy to do. Simply call the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and let the operator know where you live. Ask to contact your representative's office.

After you have made the call, please also send an e-mail using the form below. This message will go to your representative and senators. We have provided text for you, but if you decide to write your own message, please be polite and encouraging. Here are some talking points:

  • As your constituent, I am calling to ask that you please sign on as a co-sponsor of the BEST Practices Act (H.R. 1095).
  • The BEST Practices Act would modernize military medical training by replacing the use of animals with human-relevant simulators.
  • These simulators are superior to using animals and are already used by many military institutions, the civilian sector, and by many other countries.
  • Despite the availability of this modern and effective technology, the military continues to shoot, stab, burn, and amputate the limbs of more than 8,500 pigs and goats each year.
  • The BEST Practices Act will improve troop safety, save animals, and save taxpayer money by modernizing military medicine. Please co-sponsor today.

This alert is available to U.S. residents only. If you're not a U.S. resident, take one of our other actions here.


  • Your Senators
  • Your Representative (where applicable)
