Dear Lucas --Thursday night marked an historic moment not only for the LGBT community, but for all Americans.
I was proud to cast my vote allowing the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. This policy, banning gay, lesbian and bisexual people from serving openly in the military, is deeply flawed and, with this momentous vote, we are one step closer to making our military stronger. I won't stop fighting until this bill becomes law.
Discharging men and women in uniform because of their sexual orientation is not just wrong - it's un-American. And I am proud that we are closer to ending discrimination of those who put their lives on the line to keep us safe.
This Memorial Day, let's honor those who have served our country bravely and those who are now one step closer to being able to serve openly and honorably.
Thank you for your continued support and have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.
