TTPC Remembers Veterans' Day

This weekend, communities all across this nation will honor those who have served their country. Among those who have worn this nation's military uniforms, both in the past or are serving today, are many lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. These service members face the prospect of immediate discharge from every branch of the military if they come out of the closet. In addition, many can be denied some of the basic benefits they earned during their service, including health care.

On this Veterans' Day, we hope all will remember both our Veterans' and active Service members who volunteer on behalf of their country, and ask Congress to end all discrimination against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender people in both the Department of Veterans' Affairs and the Department of Defense.
