Get the First Openly Gay Chief of Military Appointed

Equal has made a CALL TO ACTION to the community to help get William White appointed Navy Secretary and to become the first openly gay chief appointed to a military branch.

As quoted from their site: "In more than 200 years, the United States military has never included an openly gay chief. Growing national focus on GLBT civil rights has therefore made the Secretary of the Navy appointment a national issue in the struggle for equal representation. Also, it highlights the antiquated policy of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" which needs to repealed."

Go to their site to see his qualifications.
