Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is one of the best books to read and understand why it's crucial to repeal DADT (Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy), and the importance of equality. Justin Elzie definitely will take you to his past journey of how he was being treated by people who were bigots/ignorants under DADT policy. You'd surprised how fast his world turned upside down right at: 'I am gay.' I give this book two thumbs up!

Format: Paperback
This book lifts my spirits in so many ways. Having know Justin in the Marine Corps it was such an amazing journey to follow him as he served this country with dignity and honor. He is what all Marines should strive to be and for all gays to look up to as a true role model. You will feel his pain and burst with pride as he overcomes the homophobia not only in this country but in the military itself. Thank you Justin for you service and it is my honor to call you friend.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Very personal account of a Marine who risked, and eventually lost, his career, solely for being gay. His story is a horrible stain on America's record of discrimination and ignorance. This is a highly competent and decorated Marine who proved to the military "leadership" that being gay IS compatible with military service. Over 100,000 brave American men and women of equal value were discarded as mere garbage by an unyielding and cruel policy that ruined lives, careers and trust in the nation they so honorably served. No one can disregard the evidence presented before them, but that is exactly just what the military did for decades of witch hunts and horror tactics to route out some of its most talented and effective members. This nation, which now allows all to serve with dignity, has NEVER EVEN APOLOGIZED for the disgrace and cruelty it inflicted on its own citizens.
