    Absolutely inspirational. Thanks for sharing. I had no idea that man was the FIRST casualty in the Iraq War. His case is well known, but the fact that he was the FIRST is just another ironic "+1" for our cause I'd say!

    I'm so glad I have shared a friendship with both Eric and Joseph for at least the last three years.. And having served with Justin Elzie.. This has been a long long road.

    A deeply moving video and yes,required viewing for all.Something about their photographs will always stay with me.It brings back memories of when the law changed in the UK and servicemen could openly serve the country.
    What those guys went through in their service,both the military/war side and also the fear of being found out....Very difficult to imagine.It says a lot for their characters how they conducted themselves.
    I was in the British Police Service and met with some prejudice and hostility,and experienced all the stress that goes with it,but I was never going to be 'dishonourably discharged' because I was gay.
    Changing their records will be long overdue.These are men of honour.
    Thank you,Troy.
