GET INVOLVED

The Military Education Initiative seeks to engage America’s 27 plus million military veterans, and the Veterans Service Organizations and Military Associations that represent them in a constructive dialogue on and to enhance understanding of the gays-in-the-military issue.

We are interested in working with US mil. vets who are interested in discussing the ban against gays, lesbians and other sexual minorities in the military. If you would like to become involved in any of the following, we invite you to fill out our confidential email form and we will contact you as soon as possible:

  1. Speaking in front of groups (other Vets, military, schools, religious);

  2. Write letters to the editor, opinion pieces to military and veterans papers/journals, newspapers and magazines and online websites;

  3. Allowing your name and military rank to be used in public education advertisements;

  4. Gathering names and contact info of other Vets who may be supportive so that MEI can contact them

  5. Allowing your name and military rank to be posted on this website as an indicatation of your support for lifting the ban

A SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL VETERANS WHO HAVE SERVED OR ARE STILL SERVING IN IRAQ AND AFGHANISTAN

CSSMM has also launched a historic new study on the experiences of US gay and lesbian troops serving in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Dr. Nathaniel Frank, Senior Research Fellow at CSSMM, is one of the nation’s leading researchers on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." Dr. Frank is seeking US troops, gay and straight, who served - or who are still serving - in Iraq and Afghanistan to participate in a study of their experiences during the War in light of the military's gay ban. Anonymity is guaranteed. Dr. Frank is also seeking anonymous interviews for his book on gays in the military and would like to interview current and former troops who have served in the US military since 1994. Dr. Frank can be reached at nfrank4@nyc.rr.edu.
