Tell President Obama: Keep your promise to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

3 posts in this topic

Lt. Dan Choi is a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and an Iraq War veteran. Last March he went on Rachel Maddow's show and spoke three truthful words: "I am gay."

As a result, Lt. Choi received a letter from the Army on April 23 discharging him for violating the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. He told Rachel Maddow the letter was "a slap in the face" to himself and the soldiers he as commanded and served with over the past decade.

Lt. Choi is fighting to stay in the military and ensure that no other soldier is ever again discharged as a result of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." CREDO Action and the Courage Campaign are joining his effort to secure equality in our armed forces.

I just signed a petition asking President Obama to keep his campaign promise to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." I hope you will, too. Please have a look and take action.

I watched the broadcast (I watch Rachel m-f) and I'm just appauled Lt Dan got the axe over this. He wants to serve his country and his fellow soldiers. Let him.

That's pretty stupid of the military ... I mean, that's direct profiling.


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.
