To the and Exchange Commission,

My neighbors, both WWI veterans who farmed the land their parents
homesteader, were I ticked to turn much of their savings over to an
unscrupulous financial advisor.  In the end, they lost a substantial
amount of money and a great deal of their land.  Worst of all, there
seemed to be no legal remedy, ever though the paperwork that lead to
the mishandling of their money and land was signed when they were both

it harder to commit such crimes, not allow , even support, their

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.
