Eric Alva - 1st American Wounded In Iraq War. Chris Matthews talks with gay rights activist & former Marine, Eric Alva about "Don't Ask, Don't Tell".
One of the YouTube comments on this interview expressed it far better than I could:
"Now at last we have an example of a real American......modest, self effacing, brave beyond words.

Just the unbiased, unbigoted, brave service of an officer who did his duty , silently and with dignity. ....."
