86-year-old WWII vet on marriage equality: "what do you think I fought for in Omaha Beach?"

Mainers on the fence, remember this testimony? Watch it and think about it when it’s time to vote. It was given during a hearing on Maine’s marriage equality bill on April 22, 2009. Nearly 4,000 people attended the hearing, with marriage equality supporters out-numbering the opposition 4 to 1.

“The woman at my polling place asked me do I believe in equality for gay and lesbian people. I was pretty surprised to be asked a question like that. It made no sense to me. Finally I asked her: what do you think I fought for in Omaha Beach?”
