REPEAL & RESPECT


Don't Ask, Don't Tell
1993-2011

Today is a monumental day for equal rights - today is the first day that homosexuals can serve openly in the United States Military. Today begins a new chapter of American history. 

The dedicated gay men and women who devote their lives to protecting our nation no longer have to do so in silence or with shame. The end of this misguided and wholly discriminatory policy means that, yes - things are getting better.

(Yes, I know Buster Bluth isn't gay. I just love Arrested Development.)

My mission statement here is "Always Looking For a Good Time". Fifty years ago my life (even as a civilian) wouldn't have been so easy, and it has taken a lot of struggle to get to where we are now. Thank you to those who have fought to help get us here. Don't Ask, Don't Tell, you're officially a thing of the past...

Don't let the door hit you on the way out.
