Join the Blend’s live chat with Katherine Miller who left West Point over DADT

Tonight, beginning just about now, at 7:30 PM, Pam is hosting a live chat with Katherine Miller, the former West Point cadet, who resigned because she’s a lesbian. Last week, she appeared on the Rachel Maddow show in a piece titled, “America’s Best and Brightest discouraged by DADT.” That video is here. Under DADT, her “integrity has been compromised.” Pam has more here.

This is a very impressive woman — and Katherine’s resignation is a loss for the U.S. military. Her letter, Written Statement of Resignation and Formal Disclosure of Homosexual Orientation, is here.

UPDATE: The chat is over, but can be viewed here.
