Remembering Those Who Served
" I believe we must be the same activists in our deaths that we are in our lives. I urge those of you who are facing death to find a method of leaving a lasting record of your accomplishments-including the acknowledgment that you were lesbian or gay".
Throughout history gay veterans have served in our nation's military services. Until September of 2011 they had to do so in silence. The time has come to erect a memorial to all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender service members past, and present, who answered this nation's call to service. The funds raised through this site will be used to build a memorial at Congressional Cemetery in Washington, DC to commemorate that service. A monument will be erected and LGBT Veterans will be able to memorialize their service on the site. The memorial will be a visible and lasting testament to the contribution gay, lesbian,bisexual, and transgender service members have made to the security of the United States.
The National LGBT Veterans Memorial Project is a tax-exempt organization under para 501c3 of IRS Regulations.
