“It was a major step”

“As a military veteran, I experienced the struggle of having to follow the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy that was in place. Even though I loved the service, I felt like we were being treated as second-class citizens. We were putting our lives on the line, but we were not allowed to be ourselves.

“When President Obama ended ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,’ I had tears in my eyes. It was a major step towards equal rights for LGBT Americans. With President Obama on our side, we will continue to make progress and move forward on this issue.”
