Abstract:

"Through interviews with active duty, reserve, and retired soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines, Secret Service underscores what people in uniform at both the highest and lowest echelons already know: Lesbians (and gay men) serve and have served proudly and well in all branches of the American armed forces (and openly in the militaries of many of our allies)." "These women - nurses, clerks, commanders, and artillerymen - are part of an extraordinary community of dedicated professionals whose commitment extends above and beyond. They are smart. They are skilled. They are lesbians. And that fact alone - ten years after "don't ask, don't tell" was implemented - still means discharge."--BOOK JACKET.
