"I am a proud daughter of a lesbian mother. I also am a proud daughter of a military mother. . . .
My mother retired after 25 years of dedication and duty. She is also a veteran of two wars. If you were to ask her whether she would serve and risk everything all over again, her answer would be "Yes."
. . . No one should have to live a double life as my family did. No child should have to lie about their family just to ensure they have a roof over their head. Change will come soon. There will be no better day than when patriots and their families are no longer forced to live in secret."
