It’s finally our Veterans Day too

It’s the first Veterans Day since DADT was lifted. It’s weird to think of all these holidays and things that we were always left out of. Now we’re not. CNN:

“One day we’ll have a gay veterans monument here, memorializing our sacrifice for America, our fight for equality, and our battle for love,” tweeted Dan Choi, an Iraq war veteran who was discharged from the Army for acknowledging that he is gay. His discharge occurred while the policy was still in effect.
