A Tribute to Gay Soldiers, Who Were There!

by Ladykelshan

Age Group: Adult

For all of the Gay U.S. Soldiers,
I admire you, and I know that
no matter who you are, and
what your background is,
you are great soldiers!
I know you gave alot for
our country!!!
I recall writing to some
that recently retired, and I
just had to drop you all
a line, to say, HEY!
You did a great job,
and were worthy of
being in the military!
Now some may have
a falling out over this, but,
I support these men!
It takes a hell of a lot
of stamina not only
to stand up to your
peers, but, to your
United States
military personel's!
YOu were there for all
of us, and that ain't
a thing that you can sit
there and deny! YOU
even though you knew
the risks, you did what
you were supposed to
It pissses me off, that
people cannot see, the
greatness in them
just doing their job,
for the United States!!
So many of them,
either died for our
country and or were
taken, and or were
abused, and citizens
that criticize these men
have the gall to put them
down, when THEY
ALL of us, respectfully!

SOme went, when there
was a draft...and did they
reveal anything, hell no!
They stayed so forcefully
strong and they worked
very diligently to the best
of their abilities!
I DOn't think we have the
rights to shun anybody,
that puts their lives on the
line for all of us, in the
We are damn lucky we
are STILL standing!
SO, I salute you,
because you deserve the
honor, one hundred times
and Frankly, YOu know,
that you did what you
could for everybody
and for your comrades,
that needed you, badly!
I just wanted you to know,
I know about ya,
and I think
you're all pretty
damn fantastic!!

Author's Notes: By ladykelshan
Written Sunday September 3rd, 2006

I did write to some higher ups that retired not too long ago...I really think what you have had to deal with and or "put up with" is NOT RIGHT..even in this day and age!
You joined because you wanted to, and not because you are gay! you really gave of yourself, and you brought good things to so many people!
It's such a shame, that people don't see those
things, and really look at the whole truth!

I know that there has to be some that are in the military forces even proud of your accomplishments...not everybody in this world is
as talented as you are....and not everybody
is "cut out"for that type of job situation!!!
YOU GO, Dudes!, cuz' You ROCK!!!!

I also need to point out the women in the military...because they are just as terrific..and they DO work HARD!!!
I appreciate what you do, and have done, for years and years for each and everyone of us...YOu are amazing people...and yet, all of you, men and women, are just yourselves doing what you do, each and every day or night...but, I still wanna tell you, thank you!!!
Your work is NOT to go unnoticed!!!
I believe in you all and I trust what you do...even if so many might not! I know it's more that you have to believe in yourself, than us believin' in you...but, I just wanted to let you know....that I appreciate the stuff you do!
All of you soldiers, straight , bi, or gay, whereever you all happen to be are sooo AWESOME! Keep going strong!
