To the and Exchange Commission,

to Whom it May Concern:

As a senior citizen who worked 41 years abroad and in the U.S. for the
federal government, I want to know that I can receive financial and
investment advice that will carry me on until I die.  Right now, I
don't have that confidence.

Please help me to make my retirement investments safe and away from
predatory financial adviser.

I'm counting on you to make a stronger rule that closes the loophole.
Americans who've worked hard to save for retirement deserve peace of
mind about their financial security.


Mr. Douglas Brown
