Remembering Corporal Andrew Wilfahrt, U.S. Army

from Courage Campaign and OutServe:

Tomorrow will mark the 100th day since President Obama signed legislation repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" back in December. "This is done," he said at the time.

But it’s not done. Since then, at least three gay soldiers have died in the closet waiting for the Pentagon and the White House to certify that Our Military is ready to implement repeal. Among them is U.S. Army Corporal Andrew Wilfahrt, whom Courage Campaign and OutServe honor today.

This is his story, as told in a powerful new video Testimony by his mother Lori and father Jeff.

Please watch this video and share with friends. People need to hear Andrew's story to show that the gays and lesbians currently serving give the same sacrifices -- and still can't serve openly and honestly.

Thanks for standing strong for equality and supporting our troops.

With thanks to JD Smith, OutServe
