Seeking: WWII-Vietnam veterans dishonorably discharged for being gay

A trusted journalist asked me if I could put him in touch with any victims of discrimination from a specific era. Frankly, I’m not able to help!

I’d love to connect with someone who received a “dishonorable” or “undesirable” discharge from the military for being gay. This was the standard procedure before the DADT policy was implemented — so ideally we’re looking for an openly gay WWII or Vietnam vet. Family members of the vet could also work.

Any ideas? Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated!

I know this guy has something up his sleeve that may actually result in real world change. It’s worth a shot, anyway. Please, if anybody knows a victim of this social injustice – please contact me.

    Did they actually give gay servicemen the heave ho during WW2? Given the shortage of troops by 1945, it seems rather short sided.

    Short sighted. Getting late.

  • Who Knows?

    I didn’t receive a dishonorable discharge, nor am I a Vietnam vet but I did receive a general discharge under honorable conditions in 1981 after nearly 5 years service for being gay.

    It going to be hard finding WW2 vets. That was a long time ago and we have been losing them at a furious pace.

    Thanks for your post. Another item is that to be a photographer will involve not only problem in recording award-winning photographs but also hardships in establishing the best digital camera suited to your requirements and most especially struggles in maintaining the caliber of your camera. This can be very real and apparent for those photographers that are straight into capturing a nature’s exciting scenes – the mountains, the forests, the wild or perhaps the seas. Visiting these amazing places unquestionably requires a video camera that can meet the wild’s nasty areas.
