A timely and historical look at the legacy of gays and lesbians in the military.
This emotional journey affects those who have served, are serving and everyone in our Nation who values the Freedom that Military men and women, homosexual and heterosexual lay their lives down for everyday. As a newly enlisted soldier, wanting nothing more than to serve my Country for Honor, Duty, Integrity, Loyalty, Personal Courage and Selfless-Service, I was not fully aware of the shadowed life I was facing during the implimentation of DADT. I suffered the loneliness of hiding something that did NOT define me as a soldier, but could also crush my Military aspirations, as well as that of my family's. A constant veil across my life to protect me, always keeping me distant from those who I stood side by side, my family away from family, that could destroy me if that veil was ever removed. This historic account of events as documented by HBO Films has enlightened me that throughout all of this, I was NEVER as alone as I thought.
Another incredible documentary by HBO Films.
