The fathers of three Green Berets who were killed in an attack last year while on a mission to train Jordanian troops are calling on the country’s government to take responsibility for the incident.

The men will be joined Tuesday at a news conference in Washington, D.C., by Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Missouri, Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas, and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, according to a release. They are scheduled to discuss developments in their search for information and their demands that the government of Jordan “account for the incident,” according to the release.
