This September, we will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of the historical repeal that ended the controversial policy that allowed LGBTQ service members to serve only if they kept their sexual orientation secret.
CalVet will host a DO Ask, DO Tell: A Veterans Celebration of the 10-year milestone to honor the service and sacrifices of LGBTQ veterans.
As part of the celebration, CalVet would like to recognize several California LGBTQ veterans who have or are doing extraordinary things in their communities that help to support, appreciate, and distinguish the lives and efforts of LGBTQ veterans and their families. This opportunity is extended to nominees throughout California who meet the criterion.
