“The truth will make you free” and
we all need to tell the truth about “Don’t Ask,
Don’t Tell,” a despicable policy which requires
non-heterosexual service personnel to barricade their
humanity within a fortress of falsehood, and to practice
deception daily throughout their careers. What could
be more demeaning and dishonorable than being forced
to live a lie in order to serve one’s country? Bravo
to MEI for bringing out the truth….

Jeff, you’ve begun a noble enterprize here. I
was a military cop and we knew who was gay and who
wasn’t in our flight. When one of our own was discharged
for being gay, all of us felt a deep grieving at loosing
him. There was no animosity towards gay service members
at all when I was on active duty; the ultra conservative
arguement that gay service members would create difficulties
with the majority of other service members is a total
fabrication. It’s not like military men haven’t been
engaged in sex play with oneanother since before the
creation of the Roman Legions; where man-to-man sex
created a strength in intimacy that made the entire
unit more cohesive as a fighting force. With our continued
efforts and greater focus towards unity we should
see the day that openly gay Americans can serve in
the military alongside their heterosexual peers, the
way that Gays do in European militaries. If it works
for them, why the hell can’t it work for us? We The
People Means All of us.

I wholeheartedly agree that gays should serve
in our armed forces. I am a straight woman who served
11 yrs on active duty alongside gay soldiers who were
comfortable enough and trusting enough to come out
to me. They were soldiers just like me and it didn’t
bother any of my fellow soldiers that these men were
gay. We only cared that they perfomed their jobs to
the best of their abilities, not with who they were
sleeping with.
America I ask you, why must we have only straight
soldiers defend and possibly die for this country?
Gays have EVERY right to serve alongside heterosexuals.
They are just as capable and it does not take away
from unit cohesion. This policy fosters a witch hunt
atmosphere and offers an “easy” way out for posers
to be discharged if they don’t like the assignment.
The constant strain of having to hide one’s sexual
identity cause undue stress and anxiety adnI feel
that takes away form unit cohesion and a soldier’s
integrity.
Let’s grow up……….

MUGU MUGU GUY KEEP OFFI served in the USMC from
1984-1996, and was discharged as a result of the Don’t
Ask, Don’t Tell policy. I know first hand that it
does more harm than good, as it leaves the decision
to conduct an investigation up to the “discretion
of the commanding officer”.
That pretty much is the loop-hole that gives them
free reign to do what they want.
That was the case in the investigation that ended
the careers of nine servicemen

As a retired army officer and a longtime supporter
of SLDN and the right to serve, I salute your efforts.
The military education initiative seems to be the
next major step as we work to fill the gap between
CSSMM’s work and long range efforts of SLDN. There
is incredible power in the voices of our GBLT vets,
voices that have yet to be raised to it’s full volume.
I can’t begin to imagine the impact we could have
if we could rally the collective voices of vets who
have served honorably in all branches of military
service. It is exciting to contemplate the power that
we have. Thanks for your efforts to harness it.

That was the case in the investigation that ended
the careers of nine servicemen in Hawaii, myself included.
We were from different branches, Army, Navy, Air Force,
and Marines, and ranged from E-3 to O-3. I was an
E-6 with 12 years of decorated service, and a Gulf
War Vet, but none of that mattered. The suggestion
that I might be gay was enough to end my career. So
much time and money was wasted to hunt us down, and
so much more was lost by discharging us. It just doesn’t
make sense. Semper Fi to all who have served.

I will always be proud of the 9 years I served
on active duty. Working as a linguist, I had the opportunity
to be involved in some pretty extraordinary events.
Although I didn’t broadcast my homosexuality, I never
went to far hide it. I left the servie in 1995 with
the reduction in force initiative. I’ve been happily
married to my partner for 12 years now and I’m happy
to say it’s to another military verteran. We met while
on active duty. We’re living proof that the ban on
gays and lesbians is a farse.

As a former cadet at USAFA, I understand the
plight of coming out and living in fear everyday.
I was dismissed in 1996 and continue to support the
gay and lesbian heros who serve in our Armed Forces.
I only hope that one day, we can serve in peace and
openess and be proud of the difference we make!

I and my partner served in the Corps for a combined
total of 33 years, and are both Nam Vets. We are both
conservatives, but we both believe that the ban is
harmful to the nation’s security, in this day and
age when serving one’s country is sneered at.

After retiring from Desert Storm, and making
the move to Atlanta, I found the local gay veterans
group already based here. I eventually became one
of the leaders of the group and continued that until
my burn out. I actively participate in the color guard
that marches in front of the parade on Pride weekend.
My friend Floyd introduced me to Jeff Cleghorn and
want to help out with MEI and AVER.

Retired with 32 years active service and promoted
to Brigadier General as the Commander of the U. S.
Army Finance and Accounting Center, Honorary Board
Member of SLDN and publicly came out in the NY Times
of Dec 10 2003 advocating DADT ban be lifted and the
most senior officer of the Army to date to do so,
I would strongly urge EVERYONE who comes to this web
site to pass its existence on to everyone they know
and encourage them to read it. Change will only occur
when it is accepted by the public at large.

While I am not a former service member, I am
an interested party and I am very excited to see this
organization reaching out to the veteran’s community
regarding DADT. As V.P. of the oldest continously
active GLBT organization in the country — Gay and
Lesbian Activists Alliance of Washington, D.C. I welcome
the newest GLBT group to the fight!

and Safety (equivalent to the Surgeon General); Co-Founder
of the Puget Sound chapter of the American Veterans

As one of the most senior military members to publically

YN2 in USCG. Active duty 71-75; reserves until
85. The closet is a horrible place; especially in
the berthing area. Glad to be out. (In spite of my
sexual activity, the ship didn’t sink and we accomplished
our mission.) I will do what I can to get rid of this
ban.

I am a Vietnam Veteran and a transgendered person.
I did not know who I was when I served, but it might
have been catastrophic if I had, since in no weay
do trans-persons even qualify for “Don’t Ask, Don’t
Tell.”
More than half the trans-persons I know are veterans,
so being trans and military is certainly not unusual.
I am not typical. I am married, I lead a 50-50 (man/transwoman)
life, and I am not in the closet. I am an activist,
and I educate by example.
