The note I sent to my Congressman Jim McDermmot thanking him for sending that letter.
“Thank you for your signature on the DADT letter that went to President Obama today. I am someone who has wanted to join the AF since I was in the 7th grade, but have not been able to reconcile my wish to serve with my need to lie about myself. I hope Obama takes your letter to heart and a reversal of this hateful law is imminent.
I also want to say how thankful I am that I just know my Congressman will be on this list for any civil rights legislation. I know how fortunate we are in the WA 7th Dist.
