In Washington where sanity struck the electorate.
Colonel Margarethe Cammermeyer got her marriage license yesterday.
They made a movie about her a profile in Courage!
In 1989, responding to a question during a routine security clearance interview, she disclosed that she is a lesbian. The National Guard began military discharge proceedings against her. On June 11, 1992, she was honorably discharged. Cammermeyer filed a lawsuit against the decision in civil court. In June 1994, Judge Thomas Zilly of the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington ruled that her discharge and the ban on gays and lesbians serving in the military were unconstitutional. She returned to the National Guard and served as one of the few openly gay or lesbian people in the U.S. military until her retirement in 1997.
For good measure the picture of theses 2 gizzly ADAM'S bears made my morning!
The Ordinary & the extraordinary!
