    Congress introduces the Restore Honor to Service Members Act


    "The Restore Honor to Service Members Act is needed for our gay and lesbian service members. It codifies the procedures and processes already taking place at the Department of Defense. It simplifies the paperwork process which at the moment is lengthy, time consuming and arduous. Finally it allows the estimated 100,000 service members who were discharged for their sexual orientation prior to the implementation of don’t ask don’t tell to seek upgrades that have been unattainable to them." - Matt Thorn, Interim Executive Director

    Naturally I support this. Will be interesting to see how the Republican majority in Congress responds, and votes. If they oppose & defeat it I would like to know how any US member of RJ could continue to express support for the Republican Party.

    I REALLY hope this goes through! Then I could finally get my "General Discharge" upgraded to Honorable (was discharged before DADT).
