GLBT Military Veterans

Those who served and have served our country have long bore a double duty and burden for us. Not only have they served and defended our liberty but made to do so while concealing their very nature. If they were ever found out it was a swift reason for discharge and not always honorable. Today I dedicate these links to all who serve or have served in the military. You have my gratitude.

The Service Members Legal Defense Network seeks to lift restrictions on gay lesbian and bisexual service members, provide protections for them, and secure the right to serve openly. They have a hotline and many excellent resources to peruse.

American veterans for Equal Rights is a group dedicated to equal rights for all current and former members of the U.S. armed forces. They have some nice links and information.

Knights Out is a group of West Point alumni, staff, and faculty supporting equality of GLBT service members to openly serve their country.

Blue Alliance is a group of U.S. Air Force Academy Alumni seek to address service members serving openly.

Also check general links to national GLBT sources they may be able to help you as well.  If anyone knows any other veteran support links please let me know. So many seem to be outdated and inactive.
