This book is timely, honest, tear-jerking, but leaves the reader feeling on top of the world. The stories are short, which makes the pages fly by and your emotions reel. A MUST READ for anyone who is interested in the more human side of military service.
Ths chapters are brief - enough to get a sense of a human being in turmoil, an incident, a resolution - some happy, some tragic. The number and variety of them is what gets to you after awhile - male, female, enlisted, officer, cadet; most currently serving, a few discharged; most gay and lesbian, one straight; but what you come away with is a profound respect for the courage it took to put your life in the service of your country despite the extraordinary burden of closing off your personal life entirely.
Everyone in uniform, and everyone who cares about our military, should read this book.
I can't think of any of these stories that show why gays shouldn't be allowed so I guess it's time. They certainly serve competently, always have---and I have known a lot of military personnel and none of them ever caused trouble or told horrendous stories of what a mess gays made of the military.
What this book did bring to light is the unfairness of gays serving so others rights can be protected when theirs aren't. Well, congratulations to ALL who serve and I hope it will be smooth sailing ahead. I did not know if I would ever see this day come in my lifetime.
