Servicemembers Legal Defense Network's blog, Frontlines, invites Bilerico Project readers to submit questions for Army Sergeant Darren Manzella. SLDN will send a selection of questions submitted directly to Darren, and he will respond next week. We'll post the answers here at Bilerico.

Many of our supporters have called, written or emailed with words of support for Army Sergeant Darren Manzella (pictured). Darren is so appreciative for the overwhelming response from SLDN supporters, and wanted us to pass along to you his thanks and gratitude.

So, if you'd like to "Ask Darren," leave your question in the comments section. Then, come back next week to see if your question was selected, and to read Darren's response.

Dear Darren
Fisrt off i just want to state tht you are an insperation to me' and to all people who belive in human rights. My name is Allon, im 18 years old and I live in Israel. I will soon be joining the IDF speacial figthing unit Golani, which is a suprieor anti-terroist unit in the IDF. as the law requiers i must join the army and i am more then happy and willing to apply. But what i fear is the react of people in the army when they find out im gay. Ive been throw a ruogh time after i told my parents, and seeing someone as brave as you come out as say that there is nothing wrong with being gay jst touches me. While writing this lines im sheding my tears in hopes that i wont be afraid anymore to live the truth. Should i hide myself or come clean?
Thank you so much' and hope you the best
allon.
