This is very meaningful personally. I served Honorably in both the US Navy 1969-1973 and later in the Marine Corps Reserve 1983-1987. I was discharged honorably from the Marines for Homosexual Admission. The trauma I went through scarred me to the point where I recently suffered flashbacks, anxiety attacks and other problems. I am going now to the VA and was recently diagnosed with PTSD. Please, any other vet, get help if you think you need it. People MUST remember us LGBT vets. The memorial is a terrific idea.

An AF gay vet served 19 years on active duty...got out 1 yr short of full military retirement. Author, poet and proudly a member of the Denver VA's LGBT committee. This memorial is historical and very appropriate.

As a U.S. Air Force Veteran who was Honorably discharged under AFR 32-10 Homosexuality, I am excited about this project.
