There’s been a lot of coverage of reactions to the DADT vote yesterday. My good friend, John Affuso, an Army vet who chose not to reenlist because of DADT, sent me the link to this video of a DADT repeal celebration with discharged vet, Travis Hengen. John was in DC in June lobbying for the repeal. He had this great quote in today’s Boston Globe:
“It’s about time,’’ said Affuso, who is gay. “I think about the thousands of people whose careers have ended because of this policy. They just wanted to serve their country.’’
That’s what this is all about.
