This volume marks the end of more than a decade of silence, giving voice to the LGBT men and women who served under “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” These individuals enlisted knowing that the military would ask them to bury an integral part of themselves and yet joined because of their deep belief that the values of the military were worth the tremendous sacrifice. This volume shares their stories for the first time, revealing an intimate portrait of military life. Edited by air force officer Josh Seefried, a cofounder of the LGBT active duty military association OutServe, the volume depicts the abuse, both physical and mental, endured at the hands of fellow soldiers and superiors, as well as the hardships faced by soldiers' families and partners and the pain of the choice between military and self.
