We Can Handle the Truth

Lt. Dan Choi and I co-authored an article published in The Daily Beast and Global Grind that gender and orientation are not relevant to the military mission. A soldier is a soldier.

    Sorry I could not make Dan's speech here in Salt Lake last night, but I did get a chance to listen to him on the Moth podcast. Wow, quite an impressive young man that I wish was still serving and protecting our 'collective' freedoms. I don't get the controversy and find it embarrassing that President Obama has yet to repeal this outdated, ineffective and detrimental policy. Let good Men and Women who want to serve – serve.
