Don’t ask, don’t tell’ to end Sept. 20
Alright VA Regional Office in North Little Rock, it took close to 40 years for it to happen, but by golly it will happen on Sept 20th 2011 the end of Don't Ask Don't Tell, and I just hope you people in the VA Regional Office in North Little Rock, AR will have to start sucking on a ship load of extra strong sour lemons because of your closed and small minded mentalities.
Gay's and Lesbians will serve openly in the Military and some gay veterans will be filling for compensation and benefits here in Arkansas. Pull your discrimination on some of them and Lambda Legal will come down hard and bring national shame down on you, whether your injustice and/or black list against me is ever lifted and I never receive even one benefit from you is purely academic because I no longer could one iota either way.
It has come to my attention over recent months that members of the VA Regional Office holds nothing but contempt and hostility for me whenever my name is dropped (and has since 1982 when I came out of the closet) and that's fine with me for the feeling is mutual. I will take special delight however in knowing you people in The VA Regional Office in North Little Rock, AR will become obligated on the 20th of September 2011 to open your doors to all gay and lesbian veterans irrespective of what your feelings about gays and lesbians are.
You don't like that do you, you people in the North Little Rock VA Regional Office, well that's just to bad I didn't like all of the years of your delibrate rejections, lies and denials over the years, there just wasn't anything I could do about it but grit my teeth and bear it. Now it's your turn people in the VA Regional Office of AR and I hope the platter full of crow you will have to eat in the coming months and years tastes like nothing but bitter gall in your throats.
