Gay Soldier

By RedrustedHat

My friend posted this on facebook, It's not copyrighted. It brought back some memories of talking with my dad who was in Vietnam too. I remember when he was giving me a talk about never judging a person because of there race/gender/sexual orientation but by the person they were. He brought up defending a fellow soldier in his unit that was thought to be gay and he defended him. He brought up that this soldier did the same job the rest of them did, was highly respected among everybody before the accusation's were brought up and it was complete nonsense to get rid of him as he still wanted to fight and back up the rest of his friends and he should be treated no different. Later on him and my dad along with a couple others from the 299th combat engineers received Silver stars for defending a spot in the Dakto Defense.
