VIDEO: Maine Veteran Fought in WWII So That We Could All Be Equal

Man, if you don't want to get choked up, don't watch this. But I highly recommend you do anyway.

This 86-year-old WWII veteran and father of a gay son spoke up in April at Maine's public hearing on the marriage equality bill that was pending at the time. "What do you think I fought for in Omaha Beach?" he asks.

We've all heard numerous times that the older generation overwhelmingly is against marriage equality. Let this serve as a reminder to us, yet again, that we have allies everywhere.
