Thanks to all my friends who responded to this request….. it was an astounding response. Well done…. will keep you posted. MEL re DADT
Dan Choi, a native of California and an Army Lieutenant, asked us to share the news of the verdict from his military trial with the Courage Campaign community.
Your overwhelming response to Lt. Choi’s requests for support has touched him deeply. In the last five days, 162,741 people signed Lt. Choi’s letter to the Army. And, a few weeks ago, 141,262 people signed Lt. Choi’s letter to President Obama. Combined, more than 300,000 signatures were collected and submitted to the Army by Lt. Choi as “Exhibit E: Courage Campaign.”
With Dan’s story attracting media coverage from CNN to the Associated Press, it’s time to take his cause to Congress. That’s why we are now teaming up with our friends at Knights Out and the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network to support Dan’s fight to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.” Will you join us today by signing our letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi by July 4th?
Chair, Courage Campaign “
