GLB Servicemen Finally Get Respect


Tomorrow is Veteran’s Day. While we remember all our servicemen who nobly fight for our country, let us not forget the more than 13,000 members who were discharged since 1993 from the military for being gay, lesbian or bisexual.
It has been less than two months since the military’s eighteen year-old policy “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”(DADT) of the Clinton-era came to an end. Today, GLB Armed Force members can serve without keeping their sexual orientation a secret.
GLB service members have finally won their personal battle within the U.S. military. May they the United States of America with the dignity and respect they deserve.
