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 [email protected].
