The timing of this story is striking, coming as 91,000 secret U.S. 
intelligence documents about the criminal war in Afghanistan are leaked. 
The militarism and patriotism of this endeavor says volumes about the 
degeneration of the gay liberation movement.

  *Gay Mil Group Forms for Post-DADT Life*

By Michelle Garcia

An organization representing gay and lesbian active duty military 
personnel announced its launch Monday, as the Defense Department seeks 
to repeal the nation's ban on openly gay troops.

*Outserve,* <http://outserve.org/> formed to help the Pentagon as the 
military eases into its proposed policy change, is headed up by J.D. 
Smith, an officer who cannot reveal his full name because of "don't ask, 
don't tell." The organization started in October 2009 as an underground 
group formed under the name Citizens for Repeal. There are approximately 
450 members, including about two dozen who are currently deployed to 
Afghanistan and Iraq.

"We are here to fight and win wars, serve with integrity and honesty and 
protect the people fighting next to us," said the organization's 
overseas director, who is currently deployed with an artillery unit in 
Baghdad. "We are proud to sacrifice for the nation we love, but we have 
a lot of educational work to do."
