In a move that finally gives Virginia reason to be proud, Congressman Jim Moran stood on the house floor on Wednesday and read a moving letter from a gay active duty serviceman that detailed his experiences serving under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell". (DADT). This is the letter I referenced yesterday that has made national headlines as the Pentagon prepares a year-long study on the effects of repealing DADT.

The following video is from the Rachel Maddow Show. The text of the letter is posted on MSNBC here.

  1. Let us serve openly...regardless if we do not have the right to marry,or not to be fired etc. Let us serve and need not be concerned that we do not have the rights that you so enjoy. Is there something very wrong here...that we would defend a country that so willingly,chronically oppresses us..?
