    Is this the same Marine who works on Obama's detail, and who came out to the President in the middle of the don't ask, don't tell debate when he had a few seconds alone with him? I saw an inspiring story about this in the news somewhere a while ago, but I can't find the link right now. I wish him and his bf all the best!

    Uhhhhhhhh....no. And I don't recall the person you are talking about. I was a super intern in DC so I know most of the people in the DADT movement, and this is not ringing a bell....icon_neutral.gif

    Unfortunately, I don't have the link to the article any more. It was a very lengthy recap on some of the behind-the-scenes of DADT, and it mentioned a Marine on Obama's detail who had about half a minute with the president alone, while the rest of the entourage was scrambling to get Biden for an impromptu meeting. And the Marine reportedly said something along the lines of "you don't know how much many of us, myself included, appreciate what you're doing on DADT", the which Obama reportedly responded "thank you four your courage", apparently with a nod and a wink of understanding on both sides. But that's just the best of my recollection of that article, no first-hand knowledge. Still, I found reading this inspiring.
