Out & Equal honors all those who serve and have served valiantly in our military. We appreciate your courage and your commitment to protecting our basic freedoms. We hope that the injustice experienced by thousands of honorable lesbian, gay, bisexual
and transgender service members who have been discriminated against
under Don't Ask, Don't Tell will soon end. And, we extend our hope for
peace and justice throughout the world.
Today, Out & Equal is proud to share two stories from veterans within the LGBT community from our new "Communities in Common
" series. Read the story from Out & Equal's Associate Director of Training and Professional Development, Pat Baillie
and the story from Lieutenant Colonel Steve Loomis
.In honor of Veterans Day, please contact your Senators and ask them to support the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell.
