‘Proud to Serve’: Timothy Beauchamp

On Wednesday, Tim mentioned that on Veterans Day in NYC, there was an opening reception for Joanne Santangelo’s new book, Proud to Serve:

Jo Ann Santangelo puts a face to the members of our community affected by Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. She provides a portrait essay and multimedia project of our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender American service members who served their country in silence or were discharged under the current Don t Ask, Don t Tell law.

Her journey took her through a 4 week, 10,167 mile road trip around the United States, putting a face on the statistics of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

One of the service members photographed for the book is our own Tim Beauchamp who was, indeed, Proud to Serve. Here’s the photo:

In addition, he has a Masters in Public Administration from Lehigh University and received his B.A. from the University of New Hampshire.

He has completed six other marathons as well -- and is still determined to break the four hour mark.
