    TODAY will go down as one of the most historic days for equal rights in my lifetime thus far. It will be compared to the moment 63 years ago when President Truman ordered the services to end racial segregation. I have served in silence for 8 years and no longer have to bear that burden in fear of losing my career. I encourage everyone to make an effort to attend a repeal party wherever you can and thank those who have fought long and hard while putting an end to this discriminatory policy once and for all. The military has always gone first and the country follows so I am anxious to see where it goes from here.

    Sept 20th 2011 will be a day I never forget, a day burned into my memory. I fight for this country, its citizens, and myself. I will sacrifice my life to defend them all. I am proud to be a member of the armed forces and I am proud to be gay. I now can do both with Honor, Courage and Commitment.
